Product Description

Review

Praise for the Paddington series:

‘I’ve always had great respect for Paddington… He is a British institution.’ Stephen Fry

‘Paddington has joined Pooh as one of the great bears of English children’s literature.’ The Teacher

‘Michael Bond’s accident-prone bear…has become one of the most enduring of children’s characters.’ The Bookseller

Product Description

The irresistible Paddington Bear, who was found on Paddington station, returns in this reissued novel, with an updated cover design.

‘I do wish I could see into Paddington’s mind,’ said Mrs Brown, ‘I know something’s going on. I can recognise the signs.’

And there is plenty of cause for concern when Paddington takes an interest in detective work. Not to mention sewing and ballroom dancing!

Stories of Paddington Bear have delighted children all over the world for fifty years.

5.0 out of 5 stars So good! 22 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Paddington books were the first stories I can remember. Reading them again the memories came flooding back, they are just SO GOOD.
I particularly wanted the books with the original (and best), Peggy Fortnum illustrations, which are as good as I remember.

My only criticism, inflation has taken over and Paddington's sixpence is now ten pence!

I can't recommend these books highly enough to everyone.
