More Paddington Bear blogging:

Paddington, the bear from Peru, will be arrested and interrogated over his immigration status in a book marking his 50th birthday.

Paddington Here and Now
, due to be published in June 2008, is set around the bear's home at 32 Windsor Gardens, Notting Hill, west London.

It will mark the 50th anniversary of his debut in A Bear Called Paddington.

In other Paddington news, he's not forsaking marmalade at all. Whew!
