Michael Bond: Paddington
This friendly little bear is a reminder that stories of migration have been told throughout history. For six decades, stories of Paddington Bear have delighted children all over the world.
For younger readers, here is the classic story of the bear from Darkest Peru who stowed away on a ship headed for England. He arrived at Paddington Station with nothing but a suitcase, a half-empty jar of marmalade and a label that read, ‘Please look after this bear. Thank you.’
