Description

We bought it for a couple of friends for Christmas and I had a flick through to check the content was good enough!

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. Confronted by a problem, I often find myself wondering how he would deal with it, and mentally take note of his advice. A collection of Paddington’s thoughts, other people’s comments about him, and general words of wisdom from our favourite Peruvian bear.Explore Paddington's unique and universal take on life in this very special collection of warm words about friendship, family, love, laughter .

Both pictures and words could be used as starting points for chatting with young children about the importance of being kind, just like Paddington. Michael Bond never thought of writing for children but, after producing a number of short stories and radio plays, his agent suggested that he adapt a television play for children. Over the past few years of seeking out Paddington stories for my own child, I have found the newer R W Alley illustrations strangely jarring - this is not the bear that I grew up with. Indeed, so many of the values and points of manners which are so important to Paddington feel like they belong to a different age.

In 2015, Michael was awarded a CBE for his services to children’s literature, to add to the OBE he received in 1997. To quote Bond further, 'Although [Paddington's] head is often in the clouds, he has his feet firmly on the ground and he has a strong sense of right and wrong. In 2015, Michael was awarded a CBE for his services to children's literature, to add to the OBE he received in 1997. I must admit that Paddington Brown really does hold a special place in my heart so this book could not be more perfect.

He takes delight in the small things, he is always grateful, he gives everything his best shot, he is unfailingly polite. I’m thoroughly embarrassed to admit that this was my first experience of reading about Paddington bear. The one aspect that I wish that the book had captured was the way that Paddington also stands up for himself. Featuring the wonderful words of Michael Bond and beautifully illustrated by Peggy Fortnum, every page contains an uplifting message or lesson that everybody could do well to learn from. Peggy Fortnum's wonderful illsutrations are accompanied by lines from various Paddington books by Michael Bond.

Now you can learn life lessons from the much-loved bear from Darkest Peru, in this uplifting collection of quotations from the enduringly popular books by Michael Bond, with beautiful illustrations by the original Paddington illustrator, Peggy Fortnum. During World War II Michael Bond served in both the Royal Air Force and the Middlesex Regiment of the British Army.
