Video Wednesday: Cornelia Funke and Inkdeath

I am so excited to announce that Cornelia Funke will be our November Author of the Month! One of the great things about working for a children's book publisher is that you can get advance copies of books coming out sometimes even before the ARC is ready. I don't exercise this privilege often, but last spring I just couldn't wait another day to read Inkdeath, so I made a few  requests and managed to get the bound manuscript. I had to beg and grovel a little bit, but it was so worth it!

Inkdeath was officially released this October and if you haven't read it yet, you are in for a treat. I won't give anything away except to say that I was thrilled to interview Cornelia at ALA last June, and she answered some of my burning questions about the Inkheart series.  Here she is reading aloud a passage from the final book.

For the full interview as well as more video, lesson plans, bonus features from the Inkheart movie, and a chance to ask Cornelia your own questions, visit her Author of the Month page.
