The classic novel—now available in paperback!
Paddington Bear loves to lend a paw. From taking a saw to Mr. Curry’s kitchen table to extinguishing a surprise flambé, each time Paddington helps out, things tend to get messier before they improve. But with his special tool kit, his playful wits, and just a little bit of marmalade, Paddington can take any day and make it extraordinary!
First published in 1960, Paddington Helps Out is the third novel by Michael Bond chronicling the adventures of this classic character. Paddington has charmed generations of readers with his earnest good intentions and humorous misadventures.
This brand-new paperback edition contains the original text by Michael Bond and illustrations by Peggy Fortnum.
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.
