Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathleen Karr
The little bear from Darkest Peru is back in full glory with its original illustrations hand-colored in watercolors by Fortnum's step granddaughter, Caroline Nuttall-Smith. Bond has compiled all his Paddington stories with an added Introduction in which he explains the evolution of the original story idea which resulted in the publication of "A Bear Called Paddington" in 1958 (although Bond himself, perhaps having told the tale so many times, calls it 1965). At any rate, the edition is a handsome one, with lovely thick paper, and type big enough for reading to, or being read by a new generation of youngsters. It should surely cause a surge in the marmalade market.

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.

R. W. Alley has illustrated a number of books featuring Paddington Bear, including Paddington Bear All Day and Paddington Bear Goes to Market. He lives in Rhode Island with his wife and their two children.

Zoƫ B. Alley is the author of There's a Wolf at the Door and There's a Princess in the Palace, both illustrated by her husband, R. W. Alley.
