About the Author:

Michael Bond purchased the original Paddington bear as a Christmas gift for his wife in 1956. A Bear Called Paddington was published two years later. At the time one reviewer said, "It should be compulsory reading for any child from six to sixty. Paddington is the funniest character in children's books for many years." Mr. Bond now lives in London.

Peggy Fortnum worked as an art teacher, painter, and textile designer before becoming a full-time book illustrator. She has illustrated nearly sixty-five books to date. Ms. Fortnum resides in Essex, England.


"The irrepressible bear is back in London . . . bounding from job to job with his good-natured but limitless capacity for chaos." (National Observer)
