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.
