Paddington is Under Investigation!

In a new book to commemorate Paddington Bear’s 50th birthday (he doesn’t look a day over 21 in my opinion!) entitled “Paddington Here and Now”, Paddington will be questioned by the UK Immigration authorities!

Michael Bond, 83, the author of the Paddington books says:

“Although the world has changed considerably over the past 30 years, he remains exactly the same – eternally optimistic and ever open to what life has to offer.

As Paddington was hidden in a lifeboat aboard a ship in Peru by Aunt Lucy when she went to live in the Home for Retired Bears in Lima he is officially a stowaway, and should rightfully be questioned about his immigration status!

I look forward to reading this!

  4. […] reason I say this is that I had to split my personal blog to create this one! Posts about Paddington bear being under investigation really didn’t sit too well with discussions about PageRank, and Bumpzee. There’s […]

  5. Paddington was the basis for my public speaking career: I used to present book reports on him when I was in the fifth grade, which is more years ago than I’m willing to admit. Unlike me, he hasn’t aged a bit!

    Paddington for President!!
