Unusual Happiness Expert Publishes Book of Teddy Bear Philosophy

Award-winning author teams up with her teddy bear to publish The Joyful Bear: A Furry Philosophy for Overcoming Adversity and Finding Happiness

Online PR News – 14-May-2016 – Vero Beach, Florida – The author of 2014\'s \"oddest title in the world\" has teamed up with an unusual co-author, a stuffed polar bear named Frank Lloyd Bear. Margaret Meps Schulte, who won the Bookseller Diagram Prize for Strangers Have the Best Candy, is launching The Joyful Bear: A Furry Philosophy for Overcoming Adversity and Finding Happiness on Kickstarter this week.
The book is intended as a concise nightstand resource, with suggestions for everything from overcoming insomnia and anxiety disorder to becoming a better listener. The story is told in a series of conversations that explain Frankie\'s \"teddy bear philosophy,\" bringing his humorous perspective to topics like mindfulness, unconditional love, and fear. Schulte attributes the success of her first book to the bear. \"Frankie is a genius; he helped me break through writer\'s block and depression,\" she said. \"Everybody needs to meet this quirky Buddha-bear.\"
The Joyful Bear, which is illustrated by Schulte, incorporates wisdom from such diverse sources as the Dalai Lama, Marshall Rosenberg, and Pollyanna. The authors hope their human-bear collaboration will take its place beside The Taoh of Pooh and The Little Prince as a valuable guide to personal growth and happiness.
