Mrs Brown bent down. “You’re a very small bear,” she said. “I’m a very rare sort of bear,” he replied importantly. “There aren’t many of us left where I come from.” “And where is that?” asked Mrs Brown. “Darkest Peru." Michael Bond based PADDINGTON Bear on a lonely teddy bear he noticed on a shelf in a London store on Christmas Eve 1956, which he bought as a present for his wife. The bear inspired Bond to write a story; A Bear Called PADDINGTON - first published on 13 October 1958 . Little could he have known then how many people from around the world would come to know, love and adore his small bear from darkest Peru. Today, the adventures of Paddington Bear continue to captivate both young and old around the world.
