A lovely insight into the early Paddington books by Michael Bond,The book is full of the old character and charm that made the lovable bear a British institution.Originally written over 50 years ago it brought a tear to the eye of the person it was purchased for, as it took them back to there childhood days,a joyous novel that depicts a mischievous Paddington at his best.

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.
