Mrs Brown bent down. ‘You’re a very small bear’ she said.
‘I’m a very rare sort of bear’ he replied importantly. ‘There aren’t many of us left where I come from.’

Michael Bond based Paddington bear on a lonely Teddy Bear he noticed on a shelf in a London store on Christmas Eve 1956 – which he bought as a present for his wife.
The Bear inspired Michael Bond to write a story – A Bear Called Paddington – first published on 13 October 1958.
