The Book No One Ever Read

Cornelia's new picture book "The Book No One Ever Read" will be published on May 14!

"The Book No One Ever Read" is 'a First' for me in many ways. It is the first picture book I illustrated myself and the first one I wrote first in English and then in German. It is the first time I used colored pencils for my illustrations and the first time I worked on coloured papers. The first time I worked in a bigger format (the originals are much bigger than the book pages) and… the first time I said to myself: 'Hmmm, maybe illustration is as much fun as writing after all?’

I like to call "The Book No One Ever Read" my Kindergarten Inkheart, as it is a love song for books and the printed words. The library it is set in may even resemble Elinor’s library, though she does of course read her books. I made a lot of my favourite authors into books for this story and I am looking forward to hear whom my readers will like best.
And then… I do of course already think about the next picture book

All the very best from Malibu,
