about

Paddington Bear has been delighting adults and children alike with his earnest good intentions and humorous misadventures for over fifty years. To celebrate his enduring popularity, eleven classic novels (complete and unabridged) are brought together in one lavish slipcased volume, truly to be treasured.Paddington Bear had travelled all the way from Darkest Peru when the Brown family first met him on Paddington station. Since then their lives have never been quite the same... for things just seem to happen to Paddington. Wherever there is excitement to be found, a flooded bathroom, menacing dumplings, or a bear overboard, Paddington is never far from the scene... This very special treasury brings together eleven of the original Paddington stories delicately illustrated by Peggy Fortnum, making an exquisite keepsake gift.

Michael Bond was born in Newbury, Berkshire on 13 January 1926 and educated at Presentation College, Reading. He served in the Royal Air Force and the British Army before working as a cameraman for BBC TV for 19 years. In 1997 he was awarded the OBE for his services to children's literature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for bedtime It is a pleasure to read these stories to my children at bedtime as my Mum did to me. Who couldn't love that well-meaning, eccentric, charismatic little bear and hearing about his many hilarious adventures.
