Every story ever written is just waiting to become real.
C'mon ... you couldn't punch your way out of a paper book!
Our hero is a ''silvertongue.'' When he reads a book aloud, things or people from the story cross over into the real world ... and someone from the real world enters the book world in exchange. That's how he lost his wife, a few years ago. Now, with his young daughter, he is desperately searching for another copy of that book, in an attempt to get his wife back. However, others are also searching for the book ... one good guy from book world, who wants to get back, and some nasties, who want to bring their mate from book world into the real world. As they race against time, things heat up.
