New Fantasy Series from Cornelia Funke!

Inkheart_130 Inkheart fans, rejoice! Cornelia Funke will be publishing a new fantasy series inspired by Grimm’s fairy tales! The first book, Reckless will be released on September 14, 2010.

I have to confess that I knew about Reckless a while ago because I met Cornelia in June 2008 and asked her what she was working on after Inkdeath. She was super-nice and told me about her next two books. You can’t see me in the video, but it really was me sitting across from her asking her questions. Seriously. I still get goosebumps thinking about it!

But now the official word is out, and Cornelia posted a message about the new book on the Cornelia Funke Fans Web site. She describes what Reckless will be about, and how excited she is about it. “I’m so much looking forward to this,” she says.

I think I speak for many many readers when I say, “MEEE TOOOOO!!!!!”

    I just read a book by someone about the Hansel and Gretel tale that was supposed to be exactly how the brothers Grimm told it but it wasn’t scary like it was supposed to be. Will yours been scary?
