My favorite part in the book is when Meggie and Farid get read into the book, because you don't really know if they will survive the trip or if they will be caught between worlds.
I would recommend this story for about fifth grade or older, mostly because it is a little confusing. Even if this book is involved with fantasy, it is still awesome. This book is not like any other book because it is just so different. This book made me feel like I was actually there at the time that an exiting part suddenly happened. Cornelia Funke wrote this book as if she was really there and it happened to her. This story is so strange that it did not remind me of any thing in this world. For example, when a character died, he could be read back to life. This book's moral would be: Always dream and believe in fantasy.
