In the Works! Writing News

Hey, booklovers! There's a lot happening in Cornelia's writing world. She's working on the last few chapters, nearing the end of Reckless: The Islands of the Fox...the MirrorWorlders are keeping her in suspense!

The Wild Chicks and The Wild Chicks: Class Trip come out on May 18th of this year, and we can't wait for you to dive into this fun middle-grade series. For a more-adult read, Cornelia's novelization of Pan's Labyrinth, on which she collaborated with filmmaker and friend Guillermo del Toro, will be out with Harper Collins next year.

There's also a new MirrorWorld story coming out with Cornelia's UK press, Pushkin: her novella The Glass of Lead and Gold will be out in September. It's a beautiful story set in an alternate London, and is full of magical characters you may have seen in the InkWorld and MirrorWorld stories!

We're constantly wow-ed by all the love from readers for Cornelia and Breathing Books. Thank you to all the voracious readers asking us about Cornelia's next books--your enthusiasm and support make our days!

Another Reckless Review!

from WriterChickAnu - This holiday season, we're particularly grateful for our wonderful readers! Many of you—like the writer of this wonderful review—have been reading Cornelia's stories voraciously for years, and we feel so lucky...

When Santa Fell to Earth - On the Silver Screen!

from CorneliaFunke.com - The German Augsburg puppet theatre is bringing its stage version of Cornelia's When Santa Fell To Earth to cinemas in Germany and German-speaking countries.

In December 2008, Cornelia's story "When Santa Fell To Earth" premiered at the famous Augsburg theatre. You can read about its very first premiere on Cornelia's website, here.

This year, the puppeteers give us a very special pre-Christmas gift: Their woodheaded Niklas will become a movie star! The film comes out on December 3, 2017. Hopefully the audience will bring enough marzipan for Twinklestar!
