Praise for the Paddington series:
'I've always had great respect for Paddington… He is a British institution.' Stephen Fry
'Paddington has joined Pooh as one of the great bears of English children's literature.' The Teacher
'Michael Bond's accident-prone bear…has become one of the most enduring of children's characters.' The BooksellerAbout the Author:
On Christmas Eve, 1956, while working as a BBC cameraman, Michael Bond bought a small toy bear who had been left alone on a shelf in a London department store. Feeling sorry for it, he took it home for his wife and they named it 'Paddington' as they were living near Paddington station. He wrote some stories about the bear, just for fun, but soon found that he had a book on his hands. In 1958, A Bear Called Paddington was published with many, many more stories to follow. Michael still lives in London with his wife, Sue. In 1997 he was awarded the OBE for his services to children's literature.
