About the Author
Michael Bond began chronicling the adventures of Paddington Bear in A Bear Called Paddington in 1958. Fortunately, bears don't need much encouragement, and Paddington has since filled the pages of fourteen novels, a variety of picture books, and many other projects written for the young at heart. Paddington's mentor lives in London, England, with his wife, Sue, and a guinea pig named Olga da Polga.
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.
Zoë B. Alley is the author of There's a Wolf at the Door and There's a Princess in the Palace, both illustrated by her husband, R. W. Alley.
