The Glass of Lead & Gold: A Magical Review

Our friends at Pushkin Press published Cornelia Funke’s latest addition to the Reckless series/MirrorWorld this fall: The Glass of Lead & Gold.

In the snow-covered city of Londra, young Tabetha survives by finding treasures in the mudbanks of the river Themse. On Christmas Eve, a sinister stranger asks her to keep her eyes open for a priceless, long-lost magical object: the Glass of Lead and Gold.

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!
