Inkheart by Cornelia Funke.
A mellifluous reading brings book characters to life, and a masterful
plan is required to foil their evil ambitions. A fastpaced,mysterious
adventure for those who relish the look, feel, smell, and words of a
delightfully satisfying book.

Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer.
Twelve-year-old Artemis Fowl is the most ingenious criminal mastermind in history. With two trusty sidekicks in tow, he hatches a cunning plot to divest the fairyfolk of their pot of gold. Of course, he isn't foolish enough to believe in all that "gold at the end of the rainbow" nonsense. Rather, he knows that the only way to separate the little people from their stash is to kidnap one of them and wait for the ransom to arrive. This is also part of a trilogy.


Happy reading!
