Newly discovered Paddington story to be published

A brand new Paddington story by creator Michael Bond will be published in March after it was discovered by the author’s agent.

Paddington’s Easter Egg Hunt was written by Bond and his daughter Karen Jankel for a charity newsletter many years ago.

It will now be released as an Easter picture book together with R W Alley’s Paddington artwork, with the audiobook read by actor Jim Broadbent (who plays Mr Gruber in the films).

In the story, Paddington is excited to be organising an Easter egg hunt for his neighbours but as usual nothing goes to plan and Paddington wonders if the egg hunt can ever go ahead.

That is, until Mr Gruber’s book of Roman mosaics and some marmalade give him a brilliant idea with some outrageously sticky results.
