My name is Leah. I'm 12 years old and in the sixth grade I am dyslexic. My favorite book is Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke. I'm excited that the sequel, The Griffon’s Feather has been released. I was bummed to know that it wasn't recorded in audio version, 1 out of 5 kids is dyslexic. Dyslexic basically means we have a harder time reading than most people and that's why I would really like it if you would record Ms Funke’s new book. I think a lot of other kids would really like it if you could maybe make an audio version. When I listened to the first book the characters started coming alive to me And made me stop thinking how I have a harder time reading than most people. It made me feel normal.

Dear Leah, welcome to Cornelia's Writing House and thank you so much for your beautiful message The audio book is already in planning We will keep you posted. Warmest wishes from Germany, Insa and Guesty

Nicole on 12 September, 2017

Hello! I'm super excited for this book but I'm a bit confused on trying to find it. Both amazon.com and amazon.co.uk have A Griffin's Feather listed for pre-order awaiting a July 2018 release date, but have used copies and Kindle editions for sale under a different entry, with the cover shown here. But when I click on the "look inside" feature, it's the text from Dragon Rider. Is the book out in English yet, or is Amazon just getting their entries confused? Thanks!

Hi Nicole, thanks for letting us know. The UK edition of The Griffin's Feather was published in July 2017. The US edition will come out around spring 2018. All the very best from Germany, Insa and Guesty
