Created in 1920, by Mary Tourtel,
Rupert Bear will 90 years old on the 8th November.
There are several things going on to celebrate his birthday
and I'll update the blog when these are finalised.
What definitely will be happening is that I shall be
at the Museum of Canterbury, that houses the Rupert Bear Museum,
on Saturday 6th, signing this years annual.
The annual is a special one with stories by
Mary Tourtel, Alfred Bestall, John Harrold, and me!
I wrote and illustrated the cover and 'Rupert and the Snowbird'.
There'll be other activities on at the museum,
but more information I would contact them direct.
Work is already underway for the 2011 Rupert Annual! 'Woo hoo!'
