Gr 2–5—The story featuring the marmalade-loving bear was first published in 1958 by William Collins & Son (now known as HarperCollins). The classic tale begins when a bear from Peru winds up in London's Paddington Station and is subsequently adopted by the Brown family (humans from the Notting Hill area). Unfailingly polite and affecting a rather shabby charm—accomplished in no small part by Peggy Fortnum's delightful line drawings—Paddington went on to have dozens of adventures over the years, spawning more than 50 titles translated into over 30 languages. A Bear Called Paddington covers the initial discovery of the bear at the train station and his first few days acclimating to life with the Browns as well as numerous episodic chapters filled with humorous mishaps. More About Paddington continues on a similar theme and includes episodes of the bubbling bear attempting to help with interior decorating, assisting at a bonfire party, and celebrating his first Christmas. With a major motion picture coming out in January 2015, a whole new generation of young readers will be introduced to the well-meaning, but ever accident-prone, bear.

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!
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.
