Author's Bio

Michael Bond began chronicling Paddington's adventures in his first book, A Bear Called Paddington, published in 1958. Fortunately, bears don't need much encouragement, and Paddington has since filled the pages of twelve further novels, a variety of picture books, and many other projects written for the young at heart.
