The Origin of Paddington Bear
Michael Bond had thought about Paddington Bear when he saw a lone teddy bear on a shelf from a London store that is near the Padding Station. It happened on Christmas Eve 1956. Thinking about the occasion, he purchased the bear and gave it as a present to his wife. After ten days, Michael was able to write a story featuring Paddington Bear. Two years after, A Bear Called Paddington was published by William Collins & Sons.
Paddington is a very friendly and polite bear that came from Darkest Peru. He was taken by Aunt Lucy and Uncle Pastuzo after his parents’ died when he was young. He moves in with the Browns and has been part of different troubles. Mrs Brown named him after the Paddington Station when they are picking up Judy after school.
The first book was published in 1958 and was divided into different chapters. The first book comes with a total of 8 chapters, but later on, more books were released. It includes More About Paddington, Paddington Helps Out, Paddington Aboard, Paddington at Large, Paddington Marches On, Paddington at Work, Paddington Goes to Town, Paddington Takes the Air and a whole lot more! The last book, Paddington at St. Paul’s was released in June 2018 as a tribute to the death of Michael Bond.
