The books are more relevant than ever for young readers. When a little brown bear arrived in London in 1958, the label attached to the bears coat politely requested that the bear be looked after.

'You're a very small bear' says Mrs. Brown when she finds him in Paddington station. 'Where are you from?'

Before he replies, the bear looks around carefully for authority figures. 'Darkest Peru. I'm not really supposed to be here at all. I'm a stowaway.'

'You'll be one of the family,' Mrs. Brown promises him and she takes him home with her. If you're wanting to book a trip to Paddingtons home country then lastminute.com up to +5.00% CashCoins is the best place for deals.

Paddington was inspired in part, Michael Bond the author has stated from his memories of watching evacuee children pass through Reading station from London during the Blitz. 'They all had a label around their neck with their name and address on a little case or package containing all their treasured possessions. So Paddington, in a sense was a refugee, and I don't think there's no sadder sight than refugees.'

Since Brexit and the Trump presidency, the story of Paddington has more of a meaning than ever. It shows how a new arrival can make a massive difference, how it can not just help one person but enrich a culture. The story shows how the Brown family sees someone in help and regardless of where they come from, the only decent thing to do is to help them. Michael Bond didn't just us Paddington bear, an illegal immigrant, he also gave us the Brown family, whose first impulse upon seeing Paddington is make him a member of the family.

In the second chapter of 'A bear called Paddington', Mr. Brown considers letting the authorities know about their new guest but is persuaded otherwise by his family members. 'He might get arrested as a stowaway.' The Browns son, Jonathan says. Mrs. Brown add 'It's not as if he's done anything wrong. I'm sure he didn't harm anyone travelling in a lifeboat like that.' It shows us how difficult the struggle is that a new arrival faces to any new land.
