All Hallow's Read at the Teddy Embassy

Busy times over at the Teddy Embassy over on Twitter & the days are getting shorter & darker & better & better for curling up with a scary book. I was in the library the other day having a wee post- nap think about the All Hallow's Read tradition that the excellent Mr Gaiman started a few years ago.

Neil Gaiman Explains All Hallow's Read:

I was thinking that it might be fun if the Teddy Embassy library joined in this year.

Here's the idea. Think of a book you find good & scary & want to share with folk. Doesn't have to be full of ghosts & ghouls. You might have a squirrel phobia & tremble with happy fear over The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin. DM your suggestion - title, author & a few words of why - to @thisbear on that Twitter. I'll make up a list which I (or my admin assistant) will turn into a blog post that will be released in a great burst of bats & broomsticks from the #teddyembassy library at Halloween.

If you could get your suggestion to me by a week before Halloween, I will love you muchly & not be tempted to turn you into a frog.

Happy spooky thinking!

Hello little blog.

Yes, Uncle Bear has been away from you for a very long time. *hangs head in shame*

Will I even be able to post to you? It did take a crack team of code breakers to even work out how to sign in again.

But I have tales for you. Special stories for wee cubs with short twitter length attentions spans. Tweeting them first but then telling them to you, my dear old blog. Hope you enjoy Uncle Bear's Bedtime Tales For Teddy Bears :o)

Dawn of the Ted

"I'm a zombie now" she said.

I sat very still & tried to think "what would Simon Pegg & Nick Frost do?" I had been doing some very important staring & wondering & was caught unprepared.

Sure enough she had been very pasty faced recently & often stumbled about moaning & groaning. I hadn't noticed. I was a very bad but very busy bear.

She only calls me Teddy when she's angry or gloomy.

"Teddy, I can't sleep. Do you have a hug for your old madame?"

She wanted me close so she could munch me like a toffee doughnut. A sad end to the life of an amazing bear.

"I'm too wonderful to die in the paws of the evil walking dead". Oops. Did I say that out loud?

"Quite" she said "but what about my insomnia?" & she prodded me with her sleep diary.

She has insomnia. I have cloth ears.
