The Lovereading comment:
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.
SynopsisThe 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 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. She quickly established her reputation as one of Germany's best loved children's authors with her series Gespensterjäger (Ghosthunters) and the Wilden Hühner (the first two books of which series are published in the UK as C.H.I.X. THE SUMMER GANG and C.H.I.X. THE NEW GIRL).
Her international break-through 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 first book in the INKHEART trilogy, followed, winning the 2004 BookSense Book of the Year Children's Literature Award. INKSPELL continued the trilogy's success, winning a second BookSense Book of the Year Children's Literature Award in 2006. The trilogy concluded with INKDEATH, in 2008. INKHEART the movie, starring Brendan Fraser, Helen Mirren and Paul Bettany, was released in the same year.
RECKLESS (first published in hardback in 2010) marked the start of Funke's exciting new Mirrorworld series, and is followed by FEARLESS this January (2013), along with a reissue of RECKLESS.
Cornelia Funke now lives in California in the USA.'
