About this deal

I recognised images that clearly accompanied stories from my son's own collection - I do understand why publishers felt the need to modernise. You can even imagine him getting in a muddle with the hand sanitiser and the face masks of the pandemic. For the last 37 years of his life Michael Bond lived in London, not far from Paddington Station where it all began. In 2015, Michael was awarded a CBE for his services to children's literature, to add to the OBE he received in 1997. I’m thoroughly embarrassed to admit that this was my first experience of reading about Paddington bear.

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. Explore Paddington’s unique and universal take on life in this very special collection of warm words about friendship, family, love, laughter … and everything in between. Indeed, so many of the values and points of manners which are so important to Paddington feel like they belong to a different age.

He was the creator of Paddington Bear and wrote about the adventures of a guinea pig named Olga da Polga, as well as the animated BBC TV series The Herbs. I felt teary as I read the lovely words and remembered again why I have loved this little bear for over thirty years.

Je suis contente d'avoir enfin découvert un morceau l'œuvre originale i Plus les illustrations sont très sympa. I must admit that Paddington Brown really does hold a special place in my heart so this book could not be more perfect. Bond also wrote culinary mystery stories for adults featuring Monsieur Pamplemousse and his faithful bloodhound, Pommes Frites. 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.Because of that, Michael Bond's description of Paddington as a 'built-in resident guru' is a very apt one. This wonderful book is nothing less than absolutely delightful and I believe that everybody could afford to Be More Paddington. Biography: Michael Bond was born in Newbury, Berkshire on 13 January 1926 and educated at Presentation College, Reading. In 2015, Michael was awarded a CBE for his services to children’s literature, to add to the OBE he received in 1997. This book is a sweet compilation of gentle thoughts and words to live by from the books, reminding us to be innocently wise and kind and well-intentioned just like Paddington Brown, even though the results may be mixed.
