 Michael Bond never intended to write for children. When he dashed off A Bear Called Paddington, he poured his personal feelings about the events of his time into the story of a bear who tries very, very hard to do things right. The incredible story of More than Marmalade: Michael Bond and the Story of Paddington Bear reveals how world history, Bond's life, and cultural struggles to integrate immigrants and refugees were embedded in Paddington's creation. Michael Bond was not a model student as a child, but his perseverance and persistence led him to unfathomable success as a writer. Author Rosanne Tolin brings middle-grade readers a delightful, engaging book with a timely message of tolerance.
