  "This is the start of a hands-down excellent series. Auel writes with intense detail the landscape and lives of how the earth might have been in pre history. She is coming out with the last book in March 2011. There is rape in this book and sexual scenes throughout the series, for those sensitive to such material. However, the rage and passion go alongside with tenderness and sensibility. Ayla is the reader's eyes to this world. She is very observant and very able, so you won't get left behind!"

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.
