The new Paddington Bear movie will soon be screening in cinemas in Australia.
Paddington first appeared on 13 October 1958 - his author (biographer?) Michael Bond featured him in more than twenty books. Paddington hails from deepest, darkest Peru and with his old hat, battered suitcase, duffle coat and love of marmalade has become a classic character in English children's literature.
YPRL’s Bolinda Borrowbox service has the book of the movie - Paddington : the story of the movie - waiting for you to borrow.
And remember kids: Paws to Read.
