Reading Funke's books is to enter a Tuetonic dream. In Reckless, Jacob is devastated at the disappearance of his father, in the night when he cannot sleep he will creep into Father's study and rattle around, enraged at his loss. One night he realizes that the mirror on Father's wall is not what it seams- placing his hand over the hand print on the mirror- he finds himself in a magical world- one that obviously holds his father. Jacob and eventually his brother, Will travel this land of ancient tales come to life where people and objects are most often more than what they appear. This appears to be book 1- a quest to save Will from being devoured by the story they have stepped into.
This is a book that can be read on multiple levels and will be enjoyed by youngsters and their parents alike.
