Brendan Fraser in Inkheart

School Library Journal praises Inkheart by Cornelia Funke, which is now being released on the big screen, featuring Brendan Fraser. This fantasy adventure involves Meggie, a young girl and her father who enjoy reading together and escaping into books. Meggie discovers, however, that her father can "read" characters out of books and real people can disappear inside the pages as well. Excitement and intrigue follow when she learns just who has been capture by the story and what villains have escaped.

Inkheart comes to theaters on January 23rd, but I highly recommend that you pick up a copy of the book before you see it. Just like Harry Potter films capture the story with great images and enhance the reading experience, I have a feeling that Inkheart will provide the same effect.

Enjoy this trailer for the upcoming release:
