About the Author

Michael Bond was born in Newbury, Berkshire, in 1926, and grew up in Reading. On leaving school at the age of fourteen, he spent a year in a lawyers’ office before joining the BBC as an engineer. During the war he served with both the RAF and the army, and it was in 1947, while stationed in Cairo, that he wrote his first short story. Its acceptance by London Opinion sowed the seeds of a future career.

One snowy Christmas Eve he was taking refuge in Selfridges when he came across a small toy bear, literally left on the shelf. Bought as a ‘stocking filler’ for his first wife, Brenda, it was to act as the inspiration for ‘A Bear Called Paddington’, first published fifty years ago, in 1958. He went on to author over one hundred books, many of them for children. In 1997 Michael Bond was awarded the OBE for his services to children’s literature.
