Mawson: So, this Too Book has Frilly in it. And here is Frilly.

1 This is Frilly Small

 Our Frilly ran away from Love. That’s what our Too book is going to be called: “She Ran Away from Love, by Mawson Bear“.

Frilly: I couldn’t help it, Mawson.

Mawson: But it was Love, Frilly.  Love is Good.

Frilly: But it shone so brightly!  I was scared

2 Scared

What does Frilly do next? Well, it really is most interesting because  ..

[Guardian: Mawson, Mawson, Shhhhh. That’s what the book is about!]

Mawson: So … errr ..  I shouldn’t say it here?

[Guardian: Best not, Mawson. Not yet.]

Mawson: Oh. Well, umm, Frilly’s book – and I’m in it Too – what a funny number that is – anyway , Frilly’s book is mostly about what happens after She Ran Away .

What would happen to YOU if you ran away from Love?

It isn’t easy being a Writer Bear

Dear fellow Baffled Ones,

We bears discovered that to make a book just right, there must be lots of pondering, writing, editing and, shudder, revision.

Directors Chair 8 Waiting Reading Sml 2690

Frilly and Mawson Bear’s helper team keep learning about all it takes to make a book.

It is all so much that I keep falling into naps.

My helpers are not falling into naps at all. They are making sure they have remembered all the things to do to take ‘She Ran Away From Love’, the next book by Me, Mawson Bear, out to the wide, bright world.

They are making important phone calls on the important green phone and fixing the cameras to make the pictures. And they are finding out how best to do stuff on the BrightWorldForBears-Net. Then they can to tell everyone about ‘She Ran Away From Love. Because you have to do a lot of Stuff even though what you really want to do is to send little book of ponders with pictures in it out for everybody.

Story Board Conference for ‘She Ran Away From Love’, the next book soon from Me, Mawson

Hello fellow Baffled Ones,

Director Scotland the Brave called a Conference. All the Pictures to be in my coming book are getting pondered about. Again. All the Words that go with the Pictures are being talked about. Again. This is called (shudder) Revison and (gulp) Editing.

Frilly is listening intently because she is the star.

Directors Chair 5 Conference Sml 2666

I already did much pondering for the Words and hopefully they are just right. But friends see changes that can make them better-rer. Err, better. The Words, not the friends. I don’t want to change my friends. They are already just right.

It’s altogether a deal of bother to make a book. There are the words. There are the pages. The covers. The naps. The conferences. More naps. Pots of coffee. Pots of honey … Hopefully it will all be finished soon and you can all find out the Words Frilly will say in the book.

Frilly Wardrobed and Made Up

Fellow Baffled Ones,
Wardrobe still aren’t finished getting Frilly ready. They looked at hats. They looked at clothes. They looked at bags. They looked at Props. And they’re still keeping her there. It seems you need the patience of a bear to be a star in photos.

Directors Chair WardrobeMakeup 2630

Here she is with Tartan Scarf and Bonnet, bears of the Wardrobe, or is it bears of the Makeup? Frilly is being Wardrobed. Or being Made Up. Which is baffling because Frilly is already herself and she doesn’t need to be made up. That’s why she got the job of being the star. . . But Wardrobe keep on fussing. Well, its just as well because the Camera Bears still haven’t fixed their cameras.

Hats Maketh The Bear

Fellow Baffled Ones,  I’ve asked Director Scotland the Brave, and it seems ‘Wardrobe’ is not about Narnia at all. It’s Scarf Bear and Bonnet who dress Frilly up. Now they are deciding about hats.

Directors Chair Wardrobe 2630

Scarf and Bonnet help Frilly with her hats and wardrobe for the book

 We all know you need just the right hat if you are going to wear a hat and I wrote hats into my book for Filly to wear but forgot to say what kind of hats because I’m not really a hat sort of bear. So Wardrobe are wardrobing away today with hats.

Script, Cameras, Action .. umm, Action?

Hello Fellow Baffled Ones,

There is going to be a NEW book by Me, Mawson Bear. It’s called, “She Ran Away From Love”. It’s about a Quest and .. Well, you can see hints here.

It takes all sorts of fuss (between naps) to make a book. Much pondering was pondered by Me, Mawson, about The Words. Then we needed Pictures because it is a Picture Book For Grownups. The Camera Bears brought their cameras to make picture.

The cameras aren’t working.

The camera bears are fixing the cameras.

Possibly.

Directors Chair 10 Props 2692Frilly is still with Tartan Scarf and Bonnet, bears of the Wardrobe. This time they are looking at Props to use in the photos when the photos get taken by the cameras that the camera bears are fixing (possibly).

To see more about what the pictures will look like in the book when it is ready, please plonk a paw down on the Follow Button on this blob, umm, this blog.

Directing Behind the Scenes

Fellow Baffled Ones,  Prof Bree and Elliot Bear are having bothers with their cameras. They are looking at them a lot and taking bits out and putting them back.

So making the photos of the Behind-The-Scenes pictures of the scenes that are In The Scenes of the pages my new book .. umm .. where am I?  Well, making scenes of all sorts has stopped.

Directors Chair Chat Sml 2665

Director Scotland the Brave chats with star Frilly while the Tech Bears check their cameras

Scotland the Brave is our Director. You can tell he’s the director because he got hold of the chair that says ‘Directors Chair’.

Scotland found it very hard to Direct while all the photo-making bears were taking the photo-making things apart and not making photos. Even though he had the chair. So he talked to our Star, Frilly, instead.  There is also Me, Mawson Bear in She Ran Away From Love but Frilly is the star.

The first book by Me, Mawson, is called Its A Bright World To Feel Lost In from from Odyssey Books.  Or, ask your friendly book shop to order one for you – and another one for a  huggable friend.  Bears LOVE bookshops. Umm … You may need this enormous number:  ISBN 978-1-922200-44-0.

‘She Ran Away From Love’, next from Mawson Bear

Fellow Baffled Ones, we’re making extra pictures to tell the bright world all about the new book being written by Me, Mawson Bear, called She Ran Away From Love. It’s about a Quest.

These pictures are about making the pictures in the Book. They are behind-the-scenes pictures. It’s a baffling thing to say because we are all in the scenes that we’re making the scenes of .. behind of … Umm … No, we’re in the scenes that we are behind of so that we can be .. errr .. in them? Possibly?

Directors Chair 1 Smal 2608

On the Set with director Scotland the Brave, Scruffy, Prof Bree, Bonnet, Frilly and Tartan

Scotland the Brave is boldly being Director. Scruffy is importantly doing important phone calls on the important green phone. Prof. Bree said she will also make moving pictures that go around. Just now the Thing-That-Goes-Around A-Lot is .. umm.. not going around.

Bonnet and Tartan Scarf Bear are being Wardrobe. Possibly this is something to do with Narnia? Today they help Frilly to choose The Explore Bag. The Explore Bag is very important in my story. Everyone wants the bag that gets the big role of Explore Bag to be just the right sort of bag. For exploring with.

Choosing just the right bag to be the Explore Bag that Frilly will carry on her quest

She Ran Away From Love will be published by Publisher Obscura. They do fun and beautiful books for Grownups with pictures in them. The pictures are mostly in the books, not in the Grownups. Or behind them .. umm .. They make grand presents for Cubs as well as Grownups and for fellow bears and for everyone you know who appreciates Stuffing. The books make grand presents. Not the cubs.

You will see Me, Mawson, in the book. But the star is our Frilly. To keep getting news about Frilly, plonk your paw on the Follow Button.
