I’ve received a very important and seemingingly dire email from The Creepings of Creeping Hills. D.M. Cunningham has gone missing. (Although I’m not too sure how much I trust the Creepings of Creeping Hills. They are a diabolical bunch.) However, they have found the last known footage of D.M.:
I’ve been asked by the Creepings to post he Halloween Tree animated series, which I think is a brilliant idea. In this animated video, you will see a more cohesive version of what we have been reading over the last 19 days. I hope you take some time this lovely Halloween and enjoy this classic book by the legendary dreamer, Ray Bradbury.
I hope you have enjoyed our crazy Halloween Tree readings, as well as agentbree.worpress.com’s month long Halloween extravaganza! It’s been a blast for all of us to bring this story to life in a somewhat unconventional form.
Go be deliciously evil and spontaneous tonight!
I love you all! Thank you for participating in this very special month!
You know, at first I’m thinking, “Wow, this HC guy is a really selfish boyfriend. Forcing his hot model girlfriend to stay at a scary movie. Even the Late MJ left the movie for his girlfriend.” And If I remember correctly, MJ was IN the movie. But then I saw the end of the reading, and realized HC’s not so bad at all. And it appears her date with HC is going to end better than her date with MJ…
Aunt Kate gets a massage while she reads the Halloween Tree Chapter 17.
Addison and Avery do their best to simultaneously make Kate’s life difficult and make her life bliss while she reads. I’m going to miss these girls, their incredible cuteness, and their commentary “It’s impossibly impossible!”
LOVING the voice and body language of this Halloween Tree reading. FEARING the gorilla mask.
Let’s just say, I grew up in Phoenix, AZ and was once traumatized as a young girl by the Suns mascot…
…that sounds a lot darker than it should. I just physically ran into him in a dark room of the arena and he grabbed me to steady me… TRAUMATIZED. So thanks for opening up old wounds, Peter!
(We are having a bit of technical difficulty with Chapter 16, so I found this wonderful, inspiring video interview with THE Mr. Ray Bradbury. It is fantastic. Incredibly beautiful. He is a true dreamer. Watch it while you wait for Chapter 16.)
This is a man after my own heart. How he fell in love with books: Comics, Grimms Fairy Tales, Dinosaurs. Three of my favorite things. No wonder he is such an inspiration to me. He decided he could live forever if he became a writer. What a wonderful man.
“The things that you do should be things that you love, and the things that you love should be things that you do.”
He is such an inspiration to readers, authors, agents, editors, publishers, artists, lovers, dreamers.
I highly suggest watching this video.
At 17:30 he begins to talk about The Halloween Tree and his inspiration in writing it.
“You find the author who can lead you through the dark…you go into the library and discover yourself.”
This is about as “experimental” as it gets.
Let me set the scene. I decided despite the weather (roughly 48 degrees), that I would put on my wig and go fully clothed into the Puget Sound (my backyard) and read Chapter 15 mermaid style.
Halloween Tree Reading FAIL.
So you get the bathtub instead. And by the time I had roughed the freezing perilous waters of the Sound, I was so delirious, that this reading is really quite boring. If you watch my hair sway in the water, it might even hypnotize you to sleep. Happy ZZZzzzzz’s!
Hahahaha. I just snorted. Noel. Knocks. It. Out. Of. The. Park.
Get ready for some awesome AWESOME Thriller night reading. No one can save you from this beast about to strike. Let HC Noel thrill ya. (Nice jacket by the way, Noel. You’re the hottest bald, goateed, mustached, white MJ ever!)
