Paddington at St Paul's, last in classic children's series, due in 2018
Michael Bond’s final book about the accident-prone bear will be published next year on the anniversary of the author’s death
A final adventure for Paddington Bear, in which the marmalade-loving magnet for trouble visits St Paul’s Cathedral, will be published in June 2018, a year after the death of his creator, Michael Bond, at the age of 91.
“He was working on it very shortly before he died,” said Bond’s daughter, Karen Jankel. “It hadn’t been illustrated, but it was there in manuscript form, and it’s lovely … He kept that magic touch right until the end. He always had to be writing, it was always his way, right through his life.”
