I know it is a long time since Paddington met the Browns. Many children have read his books. They have grown and new children have read the books too. Until it is my turn and hopefully yours. So come with me to a train station not far away. Remember to raise your hat when he raises his.
Again this was very thoughtful but I told her let me see what I could find online? So I did some checking and found the Paddington Treasury book and knew it was exactly what I wanted. I thought it was such a neat book that what was suppose to be a gift for me, turned into me ordering one copy for me which my mom would pay for, and one copy for her which I would pay for. I appreciated so much her desire to buy me something so thoughtful. I knew she'd really enjoy it and be very surprised!
So the first copy came and I wrote a note on the package and gave it to her as her copy. She was very surprised and we both looked at it and think its really exceptional! The Treasury has 35 stories and artwork that is after the original artwork so it really brings you back to that special and unique time of childhood.
I feel that anyone who has ever appreciated the Paddington stories would enjoy this collection and it would certainly be a great way to tie a parents fond memories of childhood into the life and memories of their own children through sharing and reading to and with them.
Great job on putting this collection together!
My only knock on this particular edition is that the paper it is printed on is cheap and not very durable. For the price, you can't really expect great stock paper, but it would have been nice if they had printed it on something a little more durable.
It is in this book that we get to find Paddington's first adventures around London as he experiences adventures at the theater, in the Underground (or Subway),in a large shop, at the beach and at his new home. It is in this book that we get to see the most recurring characters and locations that occur in the Paddington Bear series like Portobello Market, Mr Gruber and I am very pleased that the Kindle edition hs kept Peggy Fortnum's original ink illustrations, which I am very fond of for their energy and the clear expressions of the characters.
In the end, this book is the first in the long classical series of Paddington Bear, who comes from Darkest Peru and who loves marmalade sandwiches.
