I am a proud Bear today. Why? Because it is National American Teddy Bear day, a day celebrating a population I am proud to represent. When I think of the great bears, like Smokey, and Fozzie and Yogi, who have gone before me, my bear hair just stands straight up. Maybe one day, I'll be listed with them. Be sure to hug YOUR bear today. And give him an extra cookie for me.
Well, we've missed the actual day (November 10) of Neil Gaiman's birthday, but it's never too late to celebrate a wonderful author! He's gotten a lot of attention this year between winning the Newbery Award for The Graveyard Book, and the release of the film version of Coraline. If those piqued your interest, you might enjoy other books by Neil Gaiman. You'll find them all over the library, for Children, Teens and Adults.
This is the first book in a series called Whoops-a-Daisy World. Check the official website for more information.
