Special Sub-Topic: InkHeart
|What is the name of Dustfinger's marten?|
Gwin. Gwin is the horned marten! It is stated that his teeth are very sharp.
|What do Capricorn's men, and Dustfinger and the boy, call Mo?|
Silvertongue. They most likely call him this because they believe his tongue works magic when he speaks, seeing as he's the one who read them out of their stories.
|What is the name of the boy that comes out of "The Tale of A Thousand and One Nights" book?|
Farid. In the book that he comes out of, Farid doesn't even have a name.
|What is the name of the author of "InkHeart"? (Not the one we read, the one in the story.)|
Fenoglio. When Mo asks Fenoglio if he has a copy of the book, Fenoglio says yes, but he hopes that Mo isn't one of those people who collects rare books /just/ because they're rare.
|What happens to Elinor's books?|
They are burned, thrown off the shelf, and stepped on. Some of them are pulled off the shelves, and they look like they've been stomped on. The rest were burned.
|What is the only thing Capricorn's men know how to write, according to Dustfinger?|
The red rooster crows at dawn. Dustfinger says that's the only thing they can write, but Basta can spell his own name.
|What happens to the author of "InkHeart"?|
He disappears into the story. He was sent in when Meggie read the shadow out.
|Out of the four choices below, who does Meggie read out first?|
The Tin Soldier. Later, Fenoglio writes a new ending for the Tin Soldier, and Meggie reads the little guy into it.
|What does Dustfinger think of himself?|
He thinks he is a coward, and an outsider. There are numerous times when it's made plain that he, and many of Capricorn's men, consider him a coward. There are also lots of times when the book says Dustfinger feels like he doesn't belong.
|Why does Dustfinger want the book?|
He wants to find someone to read him back into it, so he can finally go home.. Can you imagine how it must feel to suddenly be sucked out of your world, and into a new one, with strange things that you've never seen before? (Like cars.) I don't blame him for stealing the book. He and Farid then start to perform in the streets for money, as is shown in Inkspell.
