Over fifty years ago, a small bear set out on an adventure of a lifetime. With nothing but a suitcase, several jars of marmalade, and a label around his neck that read, Please Look After This Bear, he stowed away on a ship headed for faraway England. When the little bear arrived at London's busy Paddington Station, he was discovered by Mr. and Mrs. Brown. As luck would have it, the Browns were just the sort of people to welcome a lost bear into their family.
Paddington Bear has charmed readers worldwide with his earnest good intentions and humorous misadventures. This reissue of the classic story, with artwork by R. W. Alley, will surely let a whole new generation of children find homes in their hearts for this lovable lost bear.--This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
Michael Bond began chronicling the adventures of Paddington Bear 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 over a hundred books for children, including Enzo Races in the Rain! and the Paddington Bear books by Michael Bond. He received a Theodor Seuss Geisel Award Honor for Pearl and Wagner: One Funny Day by Kate McMullan. He is also the illustrator of There's a Wolf at the Door, a Washington Post Best Book of the Year, and There's a Princess in the Palace, both written by his wife, the talented Zoë B. Alley. He lives with his family in Rhode Island.
