Synopsis

Paddington Please Look After This Bear & Other Stories by Michael Bond

Four charming tales starring the marmalade-loving bear from darkest Peru. The stories are: `Please Look After This Bear', `A Bear in Hot Water', `A Disappearing Trick' and `Paddington and the Amateur Dramatics.' `Please look after this bear' said the label around Paddington's neck, so the Brown family take him home and do just that. Life with Paddington, however, is full of surprises -as you'll find out in these four great dramatised stories! 1 CD. 50 mins.

About the Author

Michael Bond

Michael Bond 13 Jan 1926 - 28 June 2017. Born in Newbury, Berkshire, England 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.
