Party Directions!

Party Directions

Sorry everyone, Teddy forgot to include directions to the party in yesterday’s story! This was an oversight on his behalf and he wants to apologise to everyone. He was in charge of directions. I wasn’t. My only crime was to trust Teddy.

I’ve explained to him that It’s important to know where a party is, so that you know where to go. You don’t want to end up in the wrong place, especially when you’ve been looking forward to a really fun party.

Luckily I’ve made this useful map using crayons. Make sure you print it out before you leave, I’m not supposed to pick up the house phone so I won’t be able to provide additional directional assistance on the big day. If you look carefully at the map, our party can be found on the right, marked in red crayon.

See you all soon!

Unacceptable Travel Arrangements

April 15th, 2014


The other day we had some fantastic news! Otter Keeper is going over to America to launch our new book! He’s going to do a book signing at a very important bookshop in New York, and then he’s traveling around schools in 5 different cities, telling kids all about me.

There is only one huge problem with this great news, which Teddy and I only discovered after we had packed all our important things for the trip. The problem: Otter Keeper says we can’t come!

Yes, you did hear correctly. Me and Teddy are to ‘stay and look after the house’. This is extremely silly for many obvious reasons. Firstly, it is quite likely that, left to his own devices, Teddy will make a huge mess around the house. And secondly, it’s just really, REALLY unfair! I don’t believe Otter Keeper when he says that looking after the house is an important job — it’s not and he knows it!

Teddy and I have tried hiding Otter Keeper’s slippers, making protest signs, and even going to America before him (this didn’t work, but we did stand by the front door and look very serious). It appears nothing will work. We are considering our options, but have to be careful. Otter Keeper did mention a ‘babysitter’, and I don’t want him to do anything silly.

If you did want to see Otter Keeper (I can’t see why anyone would want to meet him, because he’s so mean) he will be at Books Of Wonder in NYC at 2PM on Sunday, April 27th. If you do go, please feel free to send me pictures of you throwing things at him and telling him off for not bringing me.

Finally, if I can’t get him to change his mind, I wanted to let everyone know that Teddy and I will be having a huge party at our house. We’re still working out the details, but basically we’d like everyone to come round, make a mess, and spill juice on the carpet. I’m also going do lots of crayon practice so I can sign books myself. Please contact me or Teddy if you are interested.

Otter Book Trailer!

March 17th, 2014

Hello everyone! I’m sorry I’ve been away so much recently. This has been entirely Otter Keeper’s fault because he’s been so busy working on my book! Don’t worry, he’s not getting away with it (Teddy and I took both his slippers hostage yesterday)

However, today I’ve decided to return one slipper on account of the fact that he’s made me this little video! It’s fantastic, even though Giraffe tried his best to ruin everything.

It’s now only a little over a month until my book comes out! This is obviously the most exciting thing ever! I’m so excited I might even give Otter Keeper his other slipper back. I’m a bit bored playing with it now anyway.
