Hello Insa, this really is an amazing interactive website, it has been very fun and helpful for me. I was wondering if you have any tips on how to learn German? Thanks hope you and Cornelia are having a great day!

Dear Molly, welcome to Cornelia's website . As to learning a language, I find it quite helpful to read crime stories and to watch TV series with subtitles in the original language.    

Mirrorworlder on 26 July, 2021

Hello Insa! How are you ? And Diana (and your family get well soon Greetings, Anne

Hi Anne, I'm fine, how are you?

Diana 1 on 12 July, 2021

Hi Insa, I hope you stay safe from Corona. Corona is on the rise in Iran, the corona delta affects teenagers, but now only people over the age of 50 have been vaccinated. My family and I are infected. But fortunately it is not difficult. Take care of yourself.!

Dear Diana, take care , I'm sending you and your family lots of love, hope and healing energy.

Reihaneh on 10 July, 2021

Hi Insa I'm good situation in the Iran is terrible, we are in fifth wave and the delta variant is on the rise too. and it's Indian delta (If I sayed right in English) and old people have been vaccinated here not all of us Well I hope we bake to our beautiful day

Reihaneh on 10 July, 2021

Hi Insa. How are you ? How is Corona in the Germany ? Have a nice time

I'm fine, Reihaneh, how are you? The delta variant is on the rise here as well, but many Germans have been vaccinated, meaning we hope that a fourth wave would not be a disaster, even if the delta variant becomes more widespread. How about the situation in your country?

Michele Calandriello on 10 July, 2021

Guten Tag, Frau oder bald "signora" Funke! Ist es war? Wollen Sie nach Volterra ziehen? Welche Freude für mich, gebürtiger Italiener zu erfahren, dass Sie das schon kulturträchtige Volterra zusätzlich bereichern wollen. Wann ist es soweit? Könnte ich das erfahren? Das wäre wunderbar! Inzwischen, alles Gute und weiterhin viel, viel Erfolg!

Ciao Michele, benvenuti in Cornelias Gästebuch Ja, Cornelia wird im Herbst in die Toskana ziehen. Wir werden bald mehr dazu hier auf ihrer Seite erzählen. Liebe Grüße, Insa und Gästy

Arya on 10 July, 2021

Hi Insa! Been a long time but I wanted to tell that I have the WORST case of Writer's block. I just don't have any ideas for any book. What does Cornelia do in such cases? I would really love to know.

Hi Arya, Cornelia thinks that there is no writer's block. A story is a labyrinth and it will try to trick you and lure you down the wrong path to test your devotion. So...find your way back to the path where you still felt its heart beat. And then...try another path! Be patient with yourself and your story

MirrorWolder on 7 July, 2021

Hi Insa, how are you? I found out online a map of Varangia (Russia in Reckless), but I couldn't find a clear picture (I love the Mirrorworld map, the one that is available on this website). If you could post one here it would be great Thank you very very much

I will ask Cornelia, if there is one available to show online.

Yimmiy on 6 July, 2021

Hi Cornelia, we sent you some pictures of our queeste in the footsteps of Scipio and consorts. We did it on FB because it is impossible to sent pictures on this site. Now we are at the house of Scipio. I asked of Scipio is at home, but he isn’t... Hé will come in february during Carnival they said. Greetings Yimmiy

It is not impossible, Yimmiy, you can send them to mail@corneliafunke.com

Yimmiy on 6 July, 2021

Hi Cornelia, I am Yimmiy, 11 years old and from the Netherlands. I am travelling through Europe now for 5 weeks with my parents. My mother is teaching me so I can learn and see much. I read your book just before I got to Venice. Where I am now!!! It is very quiet now here, because of Corona. But that makes it more interesting to look for the places you mention in the book. And where Bo and Prosper went. Tomorrow I will try to find the cinema in the calle de Paradisio. But it is already big fun to see the places you have written about. Thank you for this inspiring book. I hope to read more of these books in the future. Tjuss Yimmiy

Dear Yimmiy, welcome to Cornelia's guestbook and thank you so much for your beautiful message from Venice Cornelia loves Venice, especially in autumn and winter It is an enchanted place, but it is also very real. It's nothing like Hogwarts or Midd...Read more

Hi Annanya, Cornelia likes drawing, painting, knitting, felting, gardening, spending time with her family and friends and dogs. As to me, I like spending time outdoors with our dog, learning languages online, reading books about animals, cooking... How about you?

Annanya Goyal on 5 July, 2021

Gabrielle on 29 June, 2021

I love pretty much all of your books and have listened/read the Inkheart series with my family. The Dragon Rider books I read alone but they are awesome and I own Die Wilden Hühner- Deusche version. I am almost finished with the the first Reckless book. Your imagination and creativity is so absorbing. Thank you for writing, I hope to join you in the author world not too long from now.

Welcome to Cornelia's guestbook, Gabrielle, and thanks for your charming entry.

Molly on 25 June, 2021

Molly on 23 June, 2021

Hey whoever may read this. I have read and loved the Inkworld series and think that it was amazing. I am wanting to read the Mirrorworld series but do not know how many books are or what order to read them in. If anyone could let me know that would be great.
