* Paddington, who lately discovered a penchant for Marmite, celebrates his 50th birthday this year. His creator, Michael Bond, will mark the occasion with a new adventure, Paddington Here and Now (HarperCollins) in June. Sadly, Paddington has rather fallen out of favour with young readers on account (say his publishers) of the Brown family employing a housekeeper and travelling on buses, rather than in a 4x4. His big birthday also inspires a memoir by Shirley Clarkson, maker of the first Paddington toys. Bearly Believable: My Part in the Paddington Bear Story (Harriman House) tells the story of the company launched from her kitchen table. Her very first bear was made for her son, little Jeremy Clarkson, who was devoted to Paddington.
