Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The circus has come to town! Paddington Bear and the Browns have front-row seats, and they can't wait to see the show. Inside the circus tent there's a ringmaster with a top hat; a very, very tall clown; a band . . . and a funny-looking man hanging from a rope above Paddington's head. Always willing to lend a paw, Paddington rushes off to save the trapeze artist. The circus is turned upside down, but the show must go on—and it does, thanks to a surprise performance by Paddington.

Paddington Bear has charmed readers for more than fifty years. Now another generation of fans can join the beloved bear from Peru on a variety of adventures written by Michael Bond and illustrated by artist R. W. Alley.

--This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

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. Paddington’s creator is still writing and lives in London, England, not far from Paddington Station, where it all began.



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.

The circus has come to town. The Browns, including Paddington have come to see the show. With Paddington, however, everything is an adventure. This book will be a favorite of all those who read this hilarious book. The colorful and actionful story will have you laughing and smiling for hours. This is one of the best Paddington Books written.

After visiting London, we have purchased a few of the Paddington books for our kids. There are too many words on the page to read this book to a 2.5 yr old but the 7 yr. old is hooked.

Cute plot. Great pictures.

I picked this up with another Paddington to introduce this bear to my little cousin, she's 4. I enjoyed sharing it with her & I know she's going to enjoy him as much as I did when I was little. Thanks so much the pictures nice and it was easy to read to her. Cool!

It's Paddington. What's not to love? Well, maybe the dust jacket. Kid books and dust jackets just don't mix well. Another solution is called for. But the books make story time a joy over and over.

Finishing my collection of Paddington Books for my granddaughter. This did arrive a few days after the expected ship date but no big deal. I knew it was on the way.

Fabulous book that reads very well to a 3 - 7 year old, and that a 7 - 10 year old can read on their own.
