About the Author

Michael Bond

Michael Bond was born in Newbury, Berkshire, England on 13th January 1926. He was educated at Presentation College, Reading. During World War II Michael Bond served in both the Royal Air Force and the Middlesex Regiment of the British Army. He began writing in 1945 and sold his first short story to a magazine called London Opinion. This experience helped him decide that he wanted to be a writer.

After the first Paddington book was accepted, Michael Bond went on to write a whole series and by 1967 his books were so successful that that he was able to give up his job with the BBC in order to become a full-time writer.

In 2015, Michael was awarded a CBE for his services to children’s literature, to add to the OBE he received in 1997. Michael celebrated his 90th birthday in January 2016. He is married with two adult children and lives in London, not far from Paddington Station.
