A wild adventure with a gentle undertone of sibling love. The illustrations are full of character, wit, and child-like imagination. A great picture book to settle those wild brothers and sisters at bedtime.

Synopsis

The Wildest Brother by Cornelia Funke

Ben is a fearless young boy - as brave as a lion, as strong as an elephant. Nothing can distract him from his tireless task of protecting his big sister, Anna. He gallantly spends his day fending off mouldy green ghosts, slime-burping monsters, robbers and wild beasts. But when the day is over and darkness descends, Ben stops feeling quite so brave - and realises that sometimes it is his sister who does the protecting.

About the Author

Cornelia Funke

Cornelia Funke is the New York Times bestselling author of the Inkheart trilogy, The Thief Lord and a whole host of popular children’s novels and picture books.

Born in 1958 in the German town of Dorsten, Cornelia initially worked as an illustrator but soon began writing her own stories, quickly establishing a reputation as one of Germany’s best-loved children’s authors.

Her international breakthrough came with the fantasy novel Dragon Rider, which spent 78 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. Success continued with the publication of The Thief Lord, which immediately climbed to the #2 spot on the New York Times bestseller list and stayed there for 19 weeks, selling 1.5 million copies.

Inkheart the movie, starring Brendan Fraser, Helen Mirren and Paul Bettany, was released in 2008.

Reckless marked the start of Funke’s exciting new Mirrorworld series, and was followed by Fearless.

Cornelia Funke now lives in California and is working on several new books.
