Description

In 2015, Michael was awarded a CBE for his services to children’s literature, to add to the OBE he received in 1997. But while it would be easy for Paddington to have become hopelessly dated, instead he seems to represent us at our best.

We bought it for a couple of friends for Christmas and I had a flick through to check the content was good enough! Now you can learn life lessons from the much-loved bear from Darkest Peru, in this uplifting collection of quotations from the enduringly popular books by Michael Bond, with beautiful illustrations by the original Paddington illustrator, Peggy Fortnum. During World War II Michael Bond served in both the Royal Air Force and the Middlesex Regiment of the British Army. 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. 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.From arriving in London and winning the hearts of the Brown family, to sharing elevenses with Mr Gruber and lending a paw around the neighbourhood, he always tries to do his very best for others… even if there are a few well-intentioned mishaps along the way!

The illustrations of Peggy Fortnum are charming and took me right back to my first encounter with the illustrious ursine fifty years ago.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. I felt teary as I read the lovely words and remembered again why I have loved this little bear for over thirty years. He takes delight in the small things, he is always grateful, he gives everything his best shot, he is unfailingly polite. You can even imagine him getting in a muddle with the hand sanitiser and the face masks of the pandemic.

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 .

How To Be More Paddington: A Book Of Kindness by Michael Bond is a perfect book for anyone of any age who loves Paddington – and who can resist that little face?
