Description

In 1997 Michael Bond was awarded an OBE for services to children’s literature and this was followed by a CBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours in 2015. Explore Paddington's unique and universal take on life in this very special collection of warm words about friendship, family, love, laughter . Now you can learn how to be more like the much-loved bear from Darkest Peru in this uplifting collection of inspiring – often hilarious – quotes from the enduringly popular books by Michael Bond, with beautiful illustrations by the original Paddington illustrator, Peggy Fortnum. The one aspect that I wish that the book had captured was the way that Paddington also stands up for himself.

Explore Paddington's unique and universal take on life in this very special collection of warm words about friendship, love, laughter and kindness. I’m thoroughly embarrassed to admit that this was my first experience of reading about Paddington bear.Featuring the wonderful words of Michael Bond and beautifully illustrated by Peggy Fortnum, every page contains an uplifting message or lesson that everybody could do well to learn from.

This will be what I turn to when in need of cheering up, or in need of comfort, and who else to provide this but Paddington himself? To quote Bond further, 'Although [Paddington's] head is often in the clouds, he has his feet firmly on the ground and he has a strong sense of right and wrong. We bought it for a couple of friends for Christmas and I had a flick through to check the content was good enough! Peggy Fortnum's wonderful illsutrations are accompanied by lines from various Paddington books by Michael Bond. From winning the hearts of the Brown family, to sharing elevenses with Mr Gruber and lending a paw around the neighbourhood, Paddington always tries to do his very best for others…even if there are a few well-intentioned mishaps along the way!

She graduated from the Central School of Art in London after the war interrupted her studies at Tunbridge Wells Art School, then worked as an art teacher, painter and textile designer before becoming a full-time book illustrator. But while it would be easy for Paddington to have become hopelessly dated, instead he seems to represent us at our best.
