Paddington Here and Now

The irresistible Paddington Bear, who was found on Paddington station, returns in this reissued novel, with a brand new cover design. "I'm not a foreigner," exclaimed Paddington hotly. 'I'm from Darkest Peru.' Paddington Bear always manages to find himself in tricky situations, sometimes extraordinary situations. Like the time he had a difficult encounter with a policeman or when he found himself in deep water with a newspaper reporter. But since arriving from his native Peru after an earthquake Paddington has always felt at home with the Brown family who found him on Paddington station. Until one day, a surprise visitor arrives at thirty-two Windsor Gardens. Is it time for Paddington to decide where 'home' really is? In 2008 Michael Bond's first novel featuring the adventures of Paddington Bear celebrated its fiftieth anniversary. Paddington's amazing ability to get into and out of trouble is at the heart of the countless stories that have been loved the world over ever since....

Thomas Michael Bond, OBE (born 13 January 1926) is an English author, most celebrated for his Paddington Bear series of books.



Bond was educated at Presentation College, a Catholic school in Reading. During World War II he served in both the Royal Air Force and the Middlesex Regiment of the British Army.

Bond began writing in 1945 and sold his first short story to the magazine London Opinion. In 1958, after producing a number of plays and short stories and while working as a BBC television cameraman (where he worked filming Blue Peter for a time), his first book, A Bear Called Paddington, was published. This was the start of Bond's most famous series of books, telling tales of a bear from "Darkest Peru", whose Aunt Lucy sends him to England, carrying a jar of marmalade. The Brown family found the bear at Paddington Station, and adopted him, naming the bear after the station. By 1967, Bond was able to give up his BBC job to work full-time as a writer. Paddington's adventures have been published in nearly twenty countries, and have inspired pop bands, race horses, plays, hot air balloons and a TV series.[1] Bond stated in December 2007 that he did not plan to continue the adventures of Paddington Bear in further volumes.[2]

Bond has also written another series of children's books, the adventures of a guinea pig named Olga da Polga, as well as the animated BBC TV series The Herbs. Bond also writes culinary mystery stories for adults featuring Monsieur Pamplemousse and his faithful bloodhound, Pommes Frites.

In 1997, Bond was awarded the OBE for services to children's literature. On 6 July 2007 the University of Reading awarded him an Honorary Doctor of Letters.

Bond is married with two adult children and lives in London, not far from Paddington Station.
