Quote of the day

"He would follow my example in outdoor wear - a government surplus duffel coat and a bush hat - I felt he should follow my father's example and use the latter whenever he had the opportunity. My father was a polite man and never went out without a hat in case he met someone he knew and had nothing to raise (even when he went in the sea on our summer holiday!)."

The late Michael Bond, writing in a 2014 article for Radio Times about how he took inspiration from his father for his most celebrated creation, Paddington.
