Our favourite gentlemanly bear is back and framed for theft in the new sequel to the 2014 film, Paddington. Inspired by the stories written by Michael Bond, this film has been well received by critics and looks set to be a success.
Today on the King & Allen blog, we are celebrating our icon of the month, Paddington, by sharing more about the beloved bear and his iconic duffle coat.
About the Paddington Books
Michael Bond was first inspired to write about Paddington after finding a lone teddy bear on a shelf on Christmas Eve, 1956. He bought the bear and gave it as a present to his wife. Ten days later, the first book was written and in October 1958, “A Bear Called Paddington” was published. There are now nearly 30 books featuring the marmalade-loving bear.
