The circus has come to town! Paddington Bear and the Browns have front-row seats, and they can't wait to see the show. Inside the circus tent there's a ringmaster with a top hat, a very, very tall clown, a band ... and a funny-looking man hanging from a rope above Paddington's head. Always willing to lend a paw, Paddington rushes off to save the trapeze artist. The circus is turned upside-down, but the show must go on - and it does, thanks to a surprise performance by Paddington Bear.
Paddington Bear has charmed readers for nearly forty years. Now another generation of fans can join the beloved bear from Darkest Peru on a variety of adventrues written by Michael Bond and beautifully illustrated by artist R.W. Alley.
On Christmas Eve, 1956, while working as a BBC cameraman, Michael Bond bought a small toy bear that 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.
More than fifty years and many millions of books later, Paddington continues to touch the hearts of readers worldwide with his earnest good intentions and humorous misadventures.
Michael Bond still lives in London with his wife, Sue, and a guinea pig named Olga. In 1997 he was awarded the OBE for his services to children's literature.
R. W. Alley has illustrated a number of books featuring Paddington Bear, including Paddington Bear All Day and Paddington Bear Goes to Market. He lives in Rhode Island with his wife and their two children.
