Welcome to dustfinger_fans, the community for fans of Dustfinger from the Inkheart trilogy by Cornelia Funke!

Inkheart is about a girl named Meggie and her father Mo. Both of them love to read and it was soon discovered that Mo could read characters out of books when he reads aloud. Meggie was three when Mo read aloud from a book called Inkheart and three characters come out into his living room!

Dustfinger is one of the three that came out that night. He is a fire-eater and performer. When he comes into Meggie and Mo's world he is desperate to get back home. As much as Mo tried to shake him off over the years, Dustfinger always showed up again. When Meggie is 12 Dustfinger shows up on a rainy night to warn Mo about the other 2 characters that came out of the book: Capricorn and Basta.

If you are looking for something specific, feel free to browse the tags page although I don't know if some posters will use tags.
