From Our Editors

Small and philosophical with a penchant for marmalade that puts Winnie-the-Pooh's passion for honey to shame, Paddington Bear has his own brand of teddy-bear charm. An enduring, childish character that learns all his life lessons through mishaps, Paddington nonetheless has the devoted affection of his foster family, the Browns. In this volume of seven stories featuring Peggy Fortnum's original illustrations, Michael Bond's pen reveals what can happen to a bear from Darkest Peru when he comes into contact with cricket matches, paper-tearing tricks and a marmalade-tasting party! This edition of Paddington Marches On features a cover by popular illustrator R.W. Alley.
