Recently my Teddy Truffle McFurry and me spent a wonderful week in north Yorkshire, invited by Ann La Mar, one of our star reporters at “Go Teddy!”. We three are right now writing a huge book about that adventure, with many illustrations. Of many places there and, of course, of teddy bears
On my way back I took the train to Derby , where Kev le Chat – also working as reporter at “Go Teddy!” picked me up at the station. He have me as a gift a very cute little doll, disguised as a vampire for Halloween. I call her Vampiretta.
The other day he went again to a Photo Safari and sent me the photo of a Teddy Pumpkin. I guess the Halloween business is blooming up there! Vampiretta loves him, and asked me to paint him.
“If not, I will bite you!”
she said and showed me her Baby Vampire teeth through her big smile.
Who can say “no!” to a vampire? Far too dangerous! 🙂
