About the Author
Michael Bond began chronicling Paddington’s adventures in his first book, A Bear Called Paddington, published in 1958. Fortunately, bears don’t need much encouragement, and Paddington has since filled the pages of twelve further novels, a variety of picture books, and many other projects written for the young at heart.
R. W. Alley has illustrated a number of books featuring Paddington Bear. He lives in Barrington, Rhode Island, with his wife, author Zoë B. Alley.

This book is very well written. Bond paints a great picture in each of these stories--easy to visualize when reading. Bought this book for our daughter to read to our granddaughter. The book is bound quite well, and looks to last for years.
Paddington bear sure is delightful! If you are feeling down, this book will lift your spirits. Oh, have some marmalade...it makes for great reading.
