Halloween by samuel123 Halloween by samuel123
New Otter story about Halloween!!
below is a snippet, you can read the rest of the story here

[link]

Halloween is just AMAZING! I didn’t even know about it until last week when Otter Keeper explained it to me. On Halloween you get to dress up as something scary and then you can knock on people’s doors to scare them and ask for sweets! I think anyone would agree this is the most amazing concept EVER!

I naturally got really quite overwhelmed by how much I loved Halloween (I got in trouble for “excess sofa bouncing”). Otter Keeper says if I really like something and NEED to know how much I like it I should mark it out of 10 (I love doing this). If me and Teddy were marking Halloween out of 10 we decided we would definitely award it a 9.5 When I mark things out of 10 it helps calm me down you see.

After marking Halloween out of 10 I felt a bit calmer and was able to call a meeting with Teddy to discuss what we should dress up as. We both wanted to be something really REALLY scary, and It was quite hard to decide – the meeting went on for a long time and Teddy was very fussy about his costume."

Is there ANY way I can purchase copies of one or two of your prints that are listed as "no longer available?" Specifically I am looking to purchase the "Halloween" print.

Here's my email address: tscottking@gmail.com

I'm so excited! My partner (Joshua) gave me the print of Otter in the Rain last year for my birthday. He LOVES Halloween, so this is going to be the perfect gift for him!

We are big fans of "I am Otter." We love both your stories and your art.

Thank you so much! I look forward to hearing from you.

I just love Otter and Teddy and their adventures together. I delight every time I see a new adventure. I make sure to read it out loud to my wife and kids... the stories are so adorable, and your rich, colorful, and whimsical artwork reminds me of Mary Engelbreit and other great illustrators.

Thank you for these wonderful treasures. :)

heya

messages like yours really spur me on to keep doing otter you know. It's great that you enjoy otter as much as I do. hehe Otter actually has the ability to cheer me up. When I'm feeling down I write a new otterstory!
I'm especially proud that you lead them out loud to your wife and kids.
THanks for such a wonderful comment - it really made my day

Otter and Teddy send their love :)

Yay 4 Halloween!
Sadly, is not that funny in my country, ppl are true monsters here :( I didn't went for sweets this year, the last year i went out with my cousin, a band of stupid teenagers made fun of me (i was 15 years old) a lil too big for Halloween, and oh well. You knock ppl's doors and they insult you too, that's not funny...
Anyways, another excellent work and cute story <3

awwwwww thats a really sad story !!
the group of teenagers sounds like morons though.. I wouldn't care what they think
and besides 15 is certainly NOT too young to celebrate Halloween!
some people are just not nice and you should take no notice of them :)
Otter would give them a stern talking to if she ever met them :)

thanks - I wasn't so sure about the fog but i think it just about worked in the end. I didn't like it but then if I took the layer ofrf it just looked like it was missing something - so the fog stayed :)
