I’m reading “Inkheart” by Cornelia Funke at the moment – a children’s book actually – but it’s spins its magical threads so nicely that I think it’s a good read for adults as well.
By the way – I admit – I love children’s books…
However – in that book there’s a bookbinder – and he really loves books
He used to read aloud to his wife until one day, something strange happened… in short… three characters from the book suddenly stood in his living room while his wife and his two cats were gone… most probably into the book and no matter how much he tried, he couldn’t read them back… neither this nor that way…. and that’s how the adventure started….
That birthed the idea for today’s MTB… in the pre-christmas magic time we’re in…write a poem where…
- something or someone that/who is not real suddenly comes alive
- a character from a book shows up in your poem
- someone suddenly disappears and finds themselves in a whole new place….
Are you in for a little magical poetry..?
