About this deal

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. 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.

The one aspect that I wish that the book had captured was the way that Paddington also stands up for himself. I recognised images that clearly accompanied stories from my son's own collection - I do understand why publishers felt the need to modernise. 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?Join our community to get personalised book suggestions, extracts straight to your inbox, 10% off RRPs, and to change children’s lives.

Paddington was brought up to show good manners and he will not engage with those who fail to treat him with the same - he knows how to employ a good Hard Stare. I must admit that Paddington Brown really does hold a special place in my heart so this book could not be more perfect. I have gathered up postcard images of some of my favourite Fortnum illustrations but it is wonderful to finally have them in one place. I’m thoroughly embarrassed to admit that this was my first experience of reading about Paddington bear. Confronted by a problem, I often find myself wondering how he would deal with it, and mentally take note of his advice.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. Because of that, Michael Bond's description of Paddington as a 'built-in resident guru' is a very apt one. 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. 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.

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. 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. Je suis contente d'avoir enfin découvert un morceau l'œuvre originale i Plus les illustrations sont très sympa.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. But while it would be easy for Paddington to have become hopelessly dated, instead he seems to represent us at our best.
