Hardcover and paperback editions published in 1996 by Calyx Books of Corvallis, Oregon. Hardback with DJ. This book was the basis for the movie adaptation starring ELLEN PAGE as Nell and EVAN RACHEL WOOD as Eva, a -small- post-apocalyptic tale set in the woods of Northern California, a tale that doesn't feature zombies or nuclear Armageddon and for the most part keeps the causes for the apocalypse undisclosed and really quite vague, and that is because this is not so much about a plucky band making their way to a new life but is a smaller story about a family that lives at the end of a road on the edge of a forest, home schooled children with only occasional visits to town and how the shutting down of all things that we associate with "civilization" forces them to adapt their already unique lives, the story focuses predominately on Nell and Eva and, except for a very brief episode of rogue violence is essentially a story of two sisters and all their youthful trials and tribs as they adapt to a new world and a new way of living and not just surviving

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

"All the same ... it's a very important name. And I don't expect there are many bears in the world called Paddington!"

A lonely toy bear on an empty shop shelf on Christmas Eve in 1956 first captured the attention of Michael Bond, who kindly shared Paddington with the world.
