Inkling by Kenneth Oppel

Sometimes your creative projects take on a life of their own...

Random House Kids sent me an ARC of this book to read for review (thank you).  It is being published today.

In this story, it's an ink blot that escapes the paper it's on.  Inkling eats print text and illustrations and then uses it to draw more.  Because it does so well, the son uses it for his school project and his father uses it for his work.  But too much work almost kills it.  At least the boy asks it to teach him to draw.  The father is still mourning the death of his wife and is stuck in his drawing. so he lets Inky do the whole thing.

Then someone steals Inkling.  Can they get him back?

This was an entertaining read that touches your imagination.  Following the clues they find Inkling but their troubles aren't over yet...
