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.

1 Year of Reckless!

Has it been a year already? (Answer: yes, yes it has.)

The revised Reckless series has been out for a year with Breathing Books! Last year, we were so thrilled to bring you revised editions of the story Cornelia began writing several years ago, editions with cohesive cover art and more depth to the beginning of Jacob Reckless' extended adventure.

Cornelia's busy writing book four, Reckless: The Islands of the Fox, and, in the meantime, enjoy your travels through the MirrorWorld!

If, one day, you find yourself talking with Cornelia Funke, you'll likely find your eyes drawn to one of several A4 notebooks she carries with her—to events, to the beach, scattered around her home.

We are SO excited to announce that the Reckless app is now available for iPhones as well as iPad! If you haven't already seen it, the Reckless app is an expansion on the Reckless series and includes fourteen new stories that take place behind the mirror!

We've put two of the Reckless app stories on YouTube, which you can view here and here, but many of the stories are interactive, and we're thrilled that more of you will be able to experience the full compendium!
