Story Idea: The Reader

I’m sure this has been done before but I think that this would make a good kids book. A character who can travel into any book they read be it factual or fiction. They read a travel guide, they go to that country, they read a novel they are transported into that world.

I guess it’s kind of like Ink heart in reverse. I think the tension could arise from how they get back home. The scope for adventure is infinite, I think it could make for a good series of books for kids. To start off with the character could travel into books that have passed into the public domain, like Alice in Wonder Land, or Peter Pan, or even classics like Shakespeare, Austen etc. If the series took off, maybe tie in’s could be made with the rights holders for other works of fiction.

I see this as a gateway drug to reading for children, letting them experience the world of more complicated books in a children’s story, could lead to them considering reading them later on.

I got this Idea from a friends Facebook status, they said they were in Algeria, when they were actually just reading about it.
