Description

A collection of Paddington’s thoughts, other people’s comments about him, and general words of wisdom from our favourite Peruvian bear. It had been a lot of hard work but he was glad it had all been worthwhile—even if there was a lot of mess to clear up.

He takes delight in the small things, he is always grateful, he gives everything his best shot, he is unfailingly polite. Confronted by a problem, I often find myself wondering how he would deal with it, and mentally take note of his advice. I recognised images that clearly accompanied stories from my son's own collection - I do understand why publishers felt the need to modernise.

Explore Paddington's unique and universal take on life in this very special collection of warm words about friendship, love, laughter and kindness. For the last 37 years of his life Michael Bond lived in London, not far from Paddington Station where it all began.

You can even imagine him getting in a muddle with the hand sanitiser and the face masks of the pandemic.My son has a 'My First Paddington' gifted by some lovely friends and a Paddington car seat toy which he has found variously amusing and terrifying. In 2015, Michael was awarded a CBE for his services to children’s literature, to add to the OBE he received in 1997. Paddington was brought up to show good manners and he will not engage with those who fail to treat him with the same - he knows how to employ a good Hard Stare.

I must admit that Paddington Brown really does hold a special place in my heart so this book could not be more perfect. I have read this by myself and also with my two year old; it is a gift to the both of us and one to be treasured always. Bond also wrote culinary mystery stories for adults featuring Monsieur Pamplemousse and his faithful bloodhound, Pommes Frites. Tiny books of potted quotes from various pieces of classic literature are ten a penny, particularly if the characters originate from the Hundred Acre Wood.Je suis contente d'avoir enfin découvert un morceau l'œuvre originale i Plus les illustrations sont très sympa.

Indeed, so many of the values and points of manners which are so important to Paddington feel like they belong to a different age.

From winning the hearts of the Brown family, to sharing elevenses with Mr Gruber and lending a paw around the neighbourhood, Paddington always tries to do his very best for others…even if there are a few well-intentioned mishaps along the way! We bought it for a couple of friends for Christmas and I had a flick through to check the content was good enough! I have gathered up postcard images of some of my favourite Fortnum illustrations but it is wonderful to finally have them in one place.
