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.

    A perennial favorite since first released in 1959, Michael Bond

    A perennial favorite since first released in 1959, Michael Bond has hit upon a story that is sure to please many.  One step more difficult
    in reading level than the Pooh stories, Paddington’s tales are perfect for devouring all at once, or that one chapter before bed. 

    Paddington is a bear from deepest darkest Peru, arriving in London with a tag on his coat-toggle requesting that someone ‘please take
    care of this bear”.  Fortunately he was found by the Browns: Mr. and Mrs. Brown, their two children Jonathan and Judy, and their
    housekeeper, Mrs. Bird.  What started as a ‘temporary arrangement’ is now quite solidified, and Paddington is a member of the family,
    albeit not leaving for boarding school with the Brown children. 

    In this installment, Paddington is up to his usual hijinks: although to be perfectly fair, he isn’t intending them to be so difficult. It’s the
    paws you see: while Paddington is in most ways the average 10 year old (or thereabouts) boy, he isn’t a boy, he’s a bear, and bear’s
    paws are not as facile as human 10 year old boy hands.  

    With his penchant for marmalade and a love of sweet buns, to his insatiable curiosity fueled by his friend Mr. Gruber who runs a small
     shop downtown, Paddington is in to all sorts of adventures.  From Photography to snowman building, gathering pennies for the Guy
    and even helping to redecorate the spare room which is to become his very own room, Paddington’s intentions are good, even as the
    results aren’t always as planned. 

    With postcards about his life sent to his Aunt Lucy in Peru, lots of heart and some rather tangled adventures, Paddington is sure to
    become a favorite.  The re-released version also has some wonderful pen and ink illustrations from Peggy Fortnum: these are lovely
    additions that enhance the stories, providing visual references and a lightness, infused with humor and expressions on Paddington’s
    face that range from determined to puzzled, as you travel through the story. 

    I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via Edelweiss for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review:
     all conclusions are my own responsibility.

    I like Paddington Bear!

    When our boys were young, we checked several individual Paddington Bear stories out of the library to read to them and to let them look at. Then when our younger son Jeremy was little, I bought a couple of Paddington story books, A Bear Called Paddington which was the first one, and Paddington at Large, a later one. In fact, Bond wrote at least twelve books containing stories about Paddington Bear, who emigrated to London, England, when his Aunt Lucy, with whom he had lived in Darkest Peru, went to live in the Home for Retired Bears, and arrived at Paddington Station to be adopted by the Browns.
    These books are not novels as such but collections of stories about Paddington, although the stories are interconnected. In More About Paddington, which I found at a used curriculum sale, the young bear learns how to take pictures, decorate his room, do detective work, celebrate Guy Fawkes Day (with fireworks no less), play in the snow, go Christmas shopping, and enjoy the Christmas holidays. I must be honest. Even though these are children's books, I like to read them. They are fun. The amusing predicaments into which Paddington gets or finds himself are such that not only will children be tickled by them but also adults will appreciate them as well. And even though Jeremy is now fourteen, when I did this as a bedtime read aloud, he said that it was great.
