Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

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.

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.

I bought this looking for the classic illustrated edition, and at a glance this looked like it. It's not. This edition is all right, but not as charming as what I remember from the older one. Buyer be aware!

A delightful adaptation of Michael Bond's classic bear story, about Paddington the Peruvian bear, and the English family that adopts him. This large-format picturebook recaps the first of Bond's famous chapter book, from 1958, wherein Paddington is first found at a railway station and is brought back to the Brown family home. The bright, colorful artwork is perfect: it captures the warmth and whimsy of the original series, presenting us with a little, wobbly, innocent bear who is every bit as fuzzy and lovable now as he was 'way back when.

(Note: there are several other picturebooks in this series with artwork by R. W. Alley... all well worth looking for!) (Joe Sixpack, ReadThatAgain children's book reviews)

I loved the Paddington series as a kid, and I have begun to buy this story as a baby gift for friends. Paddington's antics are endearing and the pictures in this story are really well done.

Nothing beats an old classic and unlike the movie, the creepy animal killer woman is not in this book so added bonus!!! Great gift for children who have seen the movie and are interested in the "original Paddington".

The story is just as good now as it was as a child. This is one of those timeless stories which Mom and Dad will read to there little one. Beautifully done pictures for the little one to follow along with the story. A must include when parents request books for the baby shower "cards", or even if they don't make a request--what a wonderful surprise:)

We have the compete book of Paddington stories but, the girls are young and the lack of illustration can make a difficult reading session. This book is the perfect length with lovely illustrations and has made for many enjoyable cozy reading times.

I bought this for a baby shower gift for my niece's upcoming baby. In lieu of cards, we bringing a children's book, with a personal inscription to start the child's personal library of books. Well, with this book, I inscribed a personal message from my late dear, late mother, which would be the baby's Great Grandmother. :) Mom passed away just 3 years ago and loved her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, very much. My mother was also from England originally. This book was on the baby's Gift Registry. I thought it so fitting (coming from my late mom). :) I even posted a picture of her with stylish little red rain hat, which looks just like Paddington's. :) I think this gift will be a very special one.
