Bernadette  Conrad - Growing Up Big and Strong: Children making their way out into life
 
 
 

 

A conversation between mothers and an excursion through the world of Cornelia Funke

When journalist Bernadette Conrad met star author Cornelia Funke for an interview in Los Angeles in spring 2015, all she really wanted to do was ask a few questions about the writer's latest book. Then, however, the professional encounter turned into a conversation between mothers. Is there such a thing as childhood nowadays? Is the old charm of playing outside losing its magic in the face of YouTube and Instagram?

Cornelia Funke, along with Joanne K. Rowling the most successful young-adult writer and hence the most influential co-educator in the world, gives her views on the opportunities and dangers offered by the internet, the increasing pressure to do well at school and the steady disappearance of natural open spaces.

An excursion through Cornelia Funke's bestselling novels and other children's literature are the finishing touch to the conversations about the particular challenges facing us parents – and how we can help our children become "big and strong" in this world.

"Growing Up Big and Strong is no parenting book in the ordinary sense, but delivers much, much food for thought."
