A wonderful Latin edition of the classic story of Paddington, the bear from Darkest Peru, who was found lost on Paddington Station.
On Christmas Eve, 1956, while working as a BBC cameraman, Michael Bond bought a small toy bear who had been left alone on a shelf in a London department store. Feeling sorry for it, he took it home for his wife and they named it 'Paddington' as they were living near Paddington station. He wrote some stories about the bear, just for fun, but soon found that he had a book on his hands. In 1958, A Bear Called Paddington was published with many, many more stories to follow. Michael still lives in London with his wife, Sue. In 1997 he was awarded the OBE for his services to children's literature.
