... that is how we call our little, chubby colleague and you can call him that, too.

He is here for your questions and comments.

Just finished reading your new book with Guillermo del Toro. It’s truly as magical as your Inkheart trilogy.

Welcome to Cornelia's guestbook, Jules

Hello Insa! Sorry I haven't been able to write recently, I have been busy. I have broken up for the school holidays which means I am now an official year six. I have travelled to Guernsey, made a new friend on Anglesey, and read InkHeart. Hope you are well, Grace

Hello Grace, so good to hear from you Guernsey must be beautiful... Warmest wishes from Germany

Hi Will there be a movie based of book "Reckless"? Say "yees", please ;-;

I'm afraid, I have to say "noo", Crowley. There are no plans for a movie adaptation. Warmest wishes from Germany, Insa (and Guesty)

Hi, Cornelia, I'd just like to leave a few kind, if not pretentious words. I received Inkheart as gift for my 15th birthday from a friend. It was the first of your works I'd ever read, I must admit you were an entirely unknown author to me at the time. But I'm glad I was able to experience your writing and obvious love of literature. As with most new stories I was eager to discover this one, the characters, adventure, plot twists. Thankfully Inkheart had it all, there was so much to say it warranted two squeals. I've thoroughly enjoyed Inkspell and Inkdeath, although Dustfinger's death does still rattle me. I cried when Farid died too, but he thankfully was resurrected. Meggie and Mo remind me a lot of myself, I see my future house being a somewhat replica. Maybe with more books, I do fancy having my own library like Elinor. Dustfinger is my favorite character, so conflicted and intriguing. I'm 24 now and I'm rereading Inkheart for the umpteenth time. I don't know if I've found a book that has quite so much imagination and intrigue. You're a true wonder to the world, don't ever stop writing.

Dear Bonnie, welcome to Cornelia's guestbook and thank you so much for your beauuuuuuutiful entry By the way, there will be a fourth book of the Inkworld series. Ideas and notes are already waiting on Cornelia's desk...

Allison on 19 July, 2019

Hi, I read Dragon Rider in middle school. It was the book that got me into reading and I continue to love reading. I am a senior in college and found the sequel. I was so excited to read it. I love your work!!!

Welcome to Cornelia's guestbook, Allison.

Christiane Freytag on 16 July, 2019

Dear Team, I am a German teacher and I read "Tintenherz" with my class - we all liked it so much! Ond of my pupils read in an Interview with Cornelia Funke, that she loves German "Lakritze" and that her brother has to bring her some everytime he visits her. So we decided to buy one and to send it in the USA to her, but we need the address! Could you please be so kind to send us an address where we can send the Lakritze? Thank you very much! Best wishes from the 5b and me from the Hildegardis-Gymnasium in Kempten! Christiane Freytag

Dear Christiane, I've already replied to one of your pupil's entries regarding that. You find the US fan mail address HERE

Charlotte on 4 July, 2019

Hi! my fan fiction story just made it on! Its a Voltron Legendary Defender fan fiction based off of episode 28 in season 3. If you don't watch this show or you haven't seen this episode you don't have to read it.

Giuseppina Mancini on 3 July, 2019

I have just returned from Waterstones in Birmingham to talk about Pans Labyrinth. What an inspiring lady you are. Im so looking forward to reading the book. Fabulous

Welcome to Cornelia's guestbook, Giuseppina, and thank you so much for your beautiful entry. Insa and Guesty

Arctic Fox on 3 July, 2019

Greetings Insa and Guesty! If I have a question regarding Reckless 2 that you probably won't answer here, is it possible for me to send it to mail@corneliafunke.com?

Of course, Arctic Fox, go ahead

thatkitkid on 2 July, 2019

I'd like to use this opportunity to thank Ms. Funke. I read Dragon Rider when I was 10 years old - I became so engrossed in the story that I didn't even realise if someone was talking to me! I'm now 21 and my passion for writing is just as strong, if not more so. That feeling of being so lost in the imagination words can create is something I'm am desperately trying to replicate in my own writing. So thank you for helping ignite that spark and passion for writing that is a raging fire today. All the best for your future works and I hope you continue to educate and inspire new writers every day

Thank you so much for that beautiful, charming entry Welcome to Cornelia's guestbook. Insa and Guesty

Happy Birthday, Melissa!!

Oh, yes, happy birthday, Melissa

Ms. Dustfinger on 1 July, 2019

Hi! Just wondering how much Cornelia has written so far for The Colour of Revenge? It is my most anticipated book!!

She has not started writing yet, Ms Dustfinger. First she will finish the fourth book of her Mirrorworld series (which will be published in 2020) and the third Dragon Rider book. But many ideas and notes for the fourth Inkworld book are waiting on her desk
