The whole of Jammy Toast was devastated last night to hear of the death of our friend Michael Bond. Michael was the creator of the beloved Paddington Bear and died peacefully at his home on Tuesday following a short illness at the age of 91. Michael published his first book, A Bear Called Paddington, in 1958 – two years before even Bimbo and I were born. The marmalade-loving bear from “deepest, darkest Peru” who comes to live in London, went on to inspire a series of books, an animated TV series and a successful 2014 film.
