Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
What if the characters that you read about in books could come to life? Meggie's father, Mo, has the ability to read characters and items right out of books. Unfortunately, they trade places with someone or something from our world, which he found out when he read aloud the book Inkheart and his wife disappeared into it and some villians and other book characters appeared in his living room. Ten years later, Mo still has not told Meggie of his ability, but when Dustfinger, a fire eater from the book Inkheart shows up, Meggie and Mo, and Meggie's aunt Elinor are drawn into the story as well in a surrealistic adventure to send the villian back and bring Meggie's mother home. This is a fantastic book and I look forward to reading the other two books in the trilogy.
