Today, Saturday 13th October, its been 60 years since the first ever Paddington book was published. In those 60 years millions of copies of the books have been sold globally, Paddington's adventures have been translated into 40 plus languages, and, Bond's famous bear remains a much loved character worldwide.
"Bears like Paddington are very rare. And a good thing too, if you ask me, or it would cost us a small fortune in marmalade."
To celebrate the anniversary a number of Bond's classic books including, Paddington: The original story of the bear from Darkest Peru, and Paddington at St. Pauls, HarperCollins have reprinted the books supporting a beautiful golden emblem to mark the 60 years.
Happy Paddington Day Bluebirds!
