Children’s author, Michael Bond, died in London at age 91 on June 27th. His beloved bear, Paddington, has been the star of his own movie and TV show as well as a balloon in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Bond wrote over 200 books which have sold over 35 million copies in his lifetime. Along with Paddington bear, Bond also created guinea pig, Olga da Polga. Thank you Michael Bond for your wonderful stories that have entertained me for years.
