Meet the Author

Michael Bond began chronicling the adventures of Paddington Bear in A Bear Called Paddington in 1958. Fortunately, bears don't need much encouragement, and Paddington has since filled the pages of fourteen novels, a variety of picture books, and many other projects written for the young at heart. Paddington's mentor lives in London, England, with his wife, Sue, and a guinea pig named Olga da Polga.

    delightful stories

    Through the years when our boys were younger, we checked out various single-story Paddington Bear books from the library to read to them. I thought that I had done a review of one of these previously, but apparently not. Several years ago, while looking for some books to give as a present to our younger son Jeremy for his eighth birthday, I saw this original Paddington Bear book, in which Paddington Bear arrives from darkest Peru, where his Aunt Lucy had to move into a home for retired bears, and is found by Mr. and Mrs. Brown at Paddington Station, and a sequel, Paddington at Large (1962) in a book store and purchased them. At first, I thought that perhaps some of the single stories had been collected together.
    However, I have since found out that Bond originally wrote these collections, along with some ten or eleven others (More About Paddington, which we found and read later, Paddington Helps Out, Paddington Abroad, Paddington Marches On, Paddington at Work, Paddington Goes to Town, Paddington Takes to TV, Paddington Takes the Test, Paddington on Stage, and Paddington's Storybook), and the single story books were adapted from them. I do not know how available the books are. I knew I had seen one in a bookstore somewhere. When I went to Borders, they did not have any, could not find them in any other of their area stores, and said they normally did not carry them in stock. I did find single copies of the two books under review at Barnes and Noble. They are delightful stories, obviously written to appeal to young children but enjoyable for anyone. Jeremy said that they were great.

    A Bear In Britain: Funny, Engaging Adventures With an Unforgettable Native of Darkest Peru

    This book is simply wonderful. It is the first book in a series about a most remarkable bear. In this book we are introduced to the Browns. Mr. and Mrs. Brown are at a railway station -- Paddington Station -- in order to pick up their daughter Judy, who is arriving from her boarding school.

    It is in this station where they spy a small bear, who has emigrated from Darkest Peru. The Browns, while recognizing the situation is highly irregular, nevertheless decide to take Paddington home with them. And so begins a very funny series of adventures involving the Browns (a caring, polite, and reserved family) and Paddington.

    This edition of the book is beautiful. The paper is cream color, of fine quality and texture. The illustrations are beautiful. The layout welcoming.

    If you have met Paddington before, or are new to Paddington, I believe you will find spending time with him and the Browns most rewarding. Just a refreshing, entertaining, and ever-so-proper book!

    very enjoyable

    My six year old girls truly enjoyed listening to this in the car. I loved the book as a child,
    and now they can enjoy it as well. Stephen Fry does an excellent job of bringing all the characters to life.

    Paddington the Bear

    When a young bear wearing an old coat and hat, named Paddington is left to fend for himself after his aunt is put into a home for old bears, the Brown family decides to take him in. We follow the adventures of Paddington as he adapts to life with the Browns in England. Paddington is taken by the Browns to get clothing and ends up making a mess in the display window. Paddington learns how to eat like a human and walk like a human. Paddington gets in trouble one day in a train station and is band from the station. Paddington starts to learn how to live in a world full of humans. Finally Paddington starts to fit in! This book is so exciting because Paddington is such a cute loveable little bear, which just can¿t help but get into trouble! Every chapter is a different adventure for Paddington, such as him becoming a celebrity on the beach or him learning how to draw and making a big mess! Paddington is a lovely little bear that looks like any ordinary little stuffed animal, but he can come alive. Paddington never takes off his coat or hat, even when the hat fell over his eyes and he thought the power went out. Paddington always tries to do the right thing, but something always seems to go wrong. Paddington is a funny little bear. This book will never make you stop laughing.

    Paddington is Too Much!

    Paddington is an adorable character, who is more multi-dimensional than I expected him to be. Through his mishaps he puts a smile on the reader's face. He's absolutely adorable. This would be a great first chapter book for any child.
