About this deal

My son has a 'My First Paddington' gifted by some lovely friends and a Paddington car seat toy which he has found variously amusing and terrifying. I recognised images that clearly accompanied stories from my son's own collection - I do understand why publishers felt the need to modernise. I have gathered up postcard images of some of my favourite Fortnum illustrations but it is wonderful to finally have them in one place. Explore Paddington’s unique and universal take on life in this very special collection of warm words about friendship, family, love, laughter … and everything in between.

He served in the Royal Air Force and the British Army before working as a cameraman for BBC TV for 19 years. It had been a lot of hard work but he was glad it had all been worthwhile—even if there was a lot of mess to clear up. 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.But while it would be easy for Paddington to have become hopelessly dated, instead he seems to represent us at our best. Biography: Michael Bond was born in Newbury, Berkshire on 13 January 1926 and educated at Presentation College, Reading. I’m thoroughly embarrassed to admit that this was my first experience of reading about Paddington bear.

How to Be More Paddington is more celebration of this fantastic character's warmth than sincere self-help but it is incredibly special nonetheless. A lovely little book that filled me hope and joy… Read on own, and with my son aged 7, a book for the whole family. Je suis contente d'avoir enfin découvert un morceau l'œuvre originale i Plus les illustrations sont très sympa.

I have read this by myself and also with my two year old; it is a gift to the both of us and one to be treasured always. We bought it for a couple of friends for Christmas and I had a flick through to check the content was good enough! Indeed, so many of the values and points of manners which are so important to Paddington feel like they belong to a different age. During World War II Michael Bond served in both the Royal Air Force and the Middlesex Regiment of the British Army.
