He is here for your questions and comments.

OK, I have read the Thief lord, Igrine the Brave, I have just finished Inkheart and have read 2 chapters of Inkspell, my mom read Dragon Rider to my sister and I and I love ALL of them!!!

Oola on 10 July, 2020

Hello again! That dragon hasn't appeared again... I wonder it it's living in one of Cornelia's books...

Hornet on 9 July, 2020

I have been wanting to read The Thief Lord for ages, and I finally found it at school! It is amazing so far!

Deborah (Debbie)Stevenson on 9 July, 2020

I just finished Inkheart today and I LOVED it! I have got Inkspell here and am about to read it... I just want to know-at the end of the book it says I get to do a "riddle-me-ree" And I have the answer-where do I put it? (I am like Meggie and I want to find MORE!)

Dear Deborah, welcome to Cornelia's guestbook. I guess that's an extra added by the publishing company, so you should contact them.

I just finished inkheart and I don’t like how Meggie ends up with Doria she should be with Farid it kind of messed up the whole book for me. It’s still a good series but it would have been a lot better if Meggie had ended up with Farid

Dear Sky, Cornelia thinks that Farid was always very good with girls (and very interested in them), but at first he was quite intimidated by Meggie. After all he had never met a modern western girl. Don't forget he was raised in medieval Arabia. She ...Read more

I have just finished the Inkheart trilogy and I absoloutely adore Inkdeath. I just can't wait for the 4th book. Next for me is The Thief Lord, then Dragon Rider. I wonder what other suprises the other books hold...

Oola on 6 July, 2020

Hello again! Yesterday I had a close encounter with a dragon... It was green, and it had red spikes and wings. I was wondering if you'd ever met him? It said something about knowing a Guesty and Cornelia...

Unfortunately it has not shown itself to us yet, Oola. Seems it was watching us, unnoticed by us

The Thief Lord was the first book I read independently that stole my imagination. It will always hold a special place in my heart.

Ryan V. on 4 July, 2020

Hello! When I was in 3rd grade (about 10/11 years old) I began reading the Inkheart series. I accredit your writing to the beginning of my love of literature. In a few months, I will be attending the University of Chicago to study English Literature, in hopes of becoming an English professor, because my love of books and writing has become my passion, and what I want to focus on for the rest of my life. Thank you.

Dear Ryan, what a beautiful entry. Thank you so much for letting us know. We wish you an inspiring time at university. Once again, thanks for this Insa and Guesty (and Cornelia)

Abby (aka The Literary Lunatic) on 4 July, 2020

Hi again! I haven’t been on since I posted my last message, thanks for answering! During lockdown I’ve been going on a lot of walks in the park, so I was thinking about writing something about elves who live in trees and a human finds out about their existence. What do you think?

We are very curious about how that story will grow, Abby

The Curious Bookworm on 2 July, 2020

Me and my little brother have found all the secret buttons and we are loving it. Who knew that Cornelia was a Harry Potter fan like us. And I love the image of the brick that when you press it tells you about Cornelia's brick red house. I will always dream in living in a house like that.

Thanks for that beautiful message, Curious Bookworm

I love your book "Igraine the Brave"! Keep on writing!

Aloha kamaaina hello everyone in Hawaiian on 29 June, 2020

Hello! I also just saw the re-issued Inkheart. They are so cool!! Today I was back at school for the first time. I am so happy! As the lesson, we had to write about a book we had read in lockdown and I chose Inkheart! My teacher says we will do the Inkworld trilogy as the class book! Are the barn chats a video call or a message type thing?

Hi there in Hawaii Our chat has been put on the back burner for a while, because we are trying to come up with a new concept. As to your question, it is a "message type thing" for Cornelia's website visitors. Warmest wishes from Germany! Insa and Guesty 

The Curious Bookworm on 27 June, 2020

I am not quite sure where to type in mail@corneliafunke.com. I have tried it on gmail but I am not quite sure where to put it

I'm not sure, if I get your questionright , Curious Bookworm. Just send an email from your email account to mail@corneliafunke.com

CJ Meyer on 25 June, 2020

The music of MirrorWord part is reminiscent of the sound of a Dark grove

BookHugger on 24 June, 2020

Oh, and I forgot to mention in my previous comment that not only is the story incredible, but the writing. Oh my, is it gorgeous!

BookHugger on 24 June, 2020

I stayed up far too late last night finishing Inkspell . It's the first time I've read this series in so long, and I am truly awed by this fictional world. I had completely forgotten how complex all the characters become, Fenoglio especially. I'm currently writing a story for an old teacher about a world of worlds. It's shaped by people called Scripters, who built this other world through their stories that take place in a world of their creation. The world then adds to Ritora, the world of worlds... I'm not sure how well I explained that , but the Inkheart Trilogy has helped me center my idea more, along with being an incredible story that sucked me in.

Dear BookHugger, thank you so much for that beauuuutiful message. Cornelia is currently working on book 4 of the Inkworld series Take care! Insa and Guesty
