Book Description

1 Oct 2008 Paddington

Unabridged and illustrated in spectacular full-colour throughout, including previously unpublished artwork by the original illustrator, Peggy Fortnum, this beautiful keepsake will enchant established Paddington fans and a new generation of readers alike.

“A bear on Paddington Station?” said Mrs Brown in amazement. “Don’t be silly, Henry. There can’t be.”

Paddington Bear had travelled all the way from darkest Peru when the Brown family first met him on Paddington station. Since then their lives have never been quite the same… for ordinary things become quite extraordinary when a bear called Paddington is involved.

5.0 out of 5 stars A funny and charming childrens classic 11 Jun 2008
Format:Paperback
Recently reintroduced to Paddington as my 8 year old daughter has been reading it. It made me laugh out loud - highly recommended particularly for young readers who don't like fantasy literature - Paddington is wonderfully real.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enchanting...A Classic Tale 2 Jun 2010
Format:Paperback
This is the story of a little brown bear called Paddington who has a fondness for marmalade sandwiches. Every story is delightful and it's amusing to read of how Paddington manages to get himself into all sorts of trouble as he tries to settle into his new life with the Brown's.
I still have this book in my collection and would still read it from time to time. Paddington along with Noddy and Pooh are the books which stand out most when I look back on my early childhood. Long before I was able to read my mum read these stories to me and it is because of books like this that I learned to love reading so much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for kids 9 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback
I bought this book by accident, as I really wanted the picutre book for a 4 year old and this was too much text for her to read. But, I bought the picture book and gave her older sisters this book to read to her so she gets the whole store of Paddington Bear (taking British culture to the Americans) - she loved it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Popular Paddington 22 Oct 2010
By Jad
Format:Paperback
Bought this for my six year old nephew and while he absolutely loved it it was a bit too old for him. It would be better suited to seven years and over I think.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 15 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This collection of Paddington Bear stories is lovely and Stephen Fry reads these classic stories in a highly engaging manner. My children (aged 4 and 6) had not come across Paddington before but often now request these stories to listen to in bed, the only disadvantage being that unlike a lot of their other stories on CD, they actually stay awake to listen to them! The Paddington stories have stood the test of time very well, and are just as good as I remember them being from my childhood (watching the cartoons on TV). The CDs are good value too, with well over 2 hours of playing time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Bear Called Paddington 9 Nov 2010
Format:Hardcover
I bought this for my baby cousin as a present for his christening. This is a special edition book to celebrate 50 years of Paddington. It's a lovely hard back book with good quality pages, that's really good value.
I just hope my cousin will grow up to love Paddington as much as I do.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love Paddington 10 July 2011
By Zoska
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have known the books about Paddington for ages. I bought this one as a gift. It's a shame these books are much less popular now than some 20 years ago, they are classics for children and adults, just like "Winnie the Pooh", my other favourite. A note: I am a grandmother now, I read Paddington to my children.

Still brilliant. Only minor complaint is a bit of obtrusive updating, the underground ticket was sixpence not 20p darnit.

This book is amazing because it is hilarious non stop and Paddington could be like most people (he's so clumsy). He will make most of you cry and hotel with laughter. Read more
