Cornelia Funke

Cornelia Funke is German, and a month or two ago my grandma took me to a reading at the Free Library.
She read from her newest book, Inkdeath, part of the Inkheart trilogy. Ink: heart, spell and death.
I bought Inkdeath and got it, and Inkheart, signed!
That was a lot of fun.
If you haven't read any of her books, buy one of her books!!!!
More about Cornelia and her books later!!

This is just an old favorite.
This is pretty much a version of Cinderella.
So, Little Sister lives with her evil stepmother and vain stepsister.

She's really pretty, so they want to get rid of her.
It's winter, and there's a blizzard. They send her out to gather non-existent violets.
Sister can't go back without them. She is about to give up and freeze, when she sees the fire of the month brothers.
Brother April gives her violets, and she goes home.
When she is sent back in the blizzard for non-existent strawberries, she knows what to do. June gives her berries and she leaves.
The steps love the berries and want more. The stepsister goes and the brothers won't give her the berries. she gets lost in a new blizzard. The Mother goes to look for her and gets lost too.
Little sister lived alone for a few months until a farmer proposes to her. They get married, and as you might guess, they live as happily ever after as is realistic.
