Paddington Bear: courageous, proud, forever fond of adventure and always a bear of his word.
Adopted by the wonderful Brown family of 32 Windsor Gardens, the young Paddington was discovered waiting at his namesake railway station in London. Carrying just a suitcase (with a special secret compartment for all his important papers), an old bush hat and a simple instruction from his beloved Aunt Lucy in Peru (‘please look after this bear’), Paddington swiftly became a cherished member of the household, despite his hilarious capacity for catastrophe and his overwhelming interest in particularly delicious marmalade sandwiches.
Younger readers can enjoy Paddington too, with Michael’s series of picture book adventures, illustrated by R. W. Alley.
Michael Bond wrote fourteen Paddington collections, beginning with A Bear Called Paddington, illustrated by Peggy Fortnum.
