The Reckless app is a compendium of living stories that expand on the fantasy world of best-selling author Cornelia Funke's Reckless novels. The app combines cinema, storybook, and interactive elements in 16 different adventures and experiences. Immerse yourself in the tales, the magical panoramas, characters and curiosities, or read them as illustrated stories.

For the first time, the MirrorWorld described in Cornelia's stories can be seen and explored – but only by those willing to take the leap and venture beyond the Mirror....

Ground Breaking Storytelling


I saw a preview of the app from Cornelia Funke, and I felt like I was watching history being made. Now that I have the app, I'm completely blown away.

This is truly a new way of storytelling, and the stories she wrote for this app are intriguing, compelling, wonderful, and in some cases, wonderfully chilling.

All I can say is if you love stories, get this app!!!

Fantastic app!


My son and I are huge fans of Cornelia Funke's books and this app lives up to her amazing work. The tavern is so much fun to explore. My son continues to find all these cool interactive experiences. You don't need to have read Reckless to love this but if you have, you are in for a real treat. This is a very special app.

Doesn't load


I was really looking forward to seeing this. Unfortunately, it loads the splash page and music plays and that's about all. I can open the letter inform the lower right corner but if I touch anywhere on the opening screen it goes dark. The music plays for a while and then it stops leaving nothing but a silent and unresponsive black screen.

I deleted the app and reloaded it but got the same thing.
