Mo is a bookbinder with exquisite skills. When Meggie was a baby mo and his wife Resa were reading her Inkeart. While Mo was reading to her evil figures came out of the book and Resa went in, in their place. Mo was astonished and depressed all at once. The evil figures that were released from the book started to call Mo Silvertongue because of his creative skills of reading them out. Mo befriended one named Dustfinger and along Mo and Meggie's journey he betrayed them multiple times. If you wanna find out about their enticing journey then read Inkheart. Farid He was read out of Ali Baba and the Fourty Thieves from the Arabian Nights by Mo. He follows Dustfinger around to learn how to breath fire. He fell madly in love with Meggie and he saves the group quite a few times. Quote # 1 "some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thotoughly." This quote is significant because Mo's favorite book is Inkheart and he read his wife into it and his enemies out of it. Every book should be read but only your favorite book will be remembered. Quote # 2 "Books have to be heavy because the whole world's inside them." This quote is significant because Inkheart has over 500 pages and has a world inside a world. Bigger book, bigger worlds Journal Activity Explain why Capricorn's mother is called the 'Magpie". Lab Connection The connection that Inkheart has with my lab is creating art. In the book the words are art and in my lab the food is art. This book is extremely unique because the author made a world inside a world,he created so many different characters and they all are very different. Food has evolved over the years and has become way more creative, a watermelon is no longer a watermelon, they design it into different objects. We make sculptures out of chocolate and cake. So, creativity makes you want more, more of the book and more of the food.
