9780006753636: Paddington At Large

The irresistible Paddington Bear, who was found on Paddington station, returns in this reissued novel, with a brand new cover design. "Even Paddington can't come to much harm in half an hour," said Mrs Brown optimistically. But who else other than Paddington could hang Mr Curry's lawnmower from a treetop or set Father Christmas' beard on fire?

About the Author:

Michael Bond was born in Newbury, Berkshire on 13 January 1926 and attended 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.

From Booklist:

Gr. 3^-7. Under a bright, newly designed dust jacket lies the same old beloved Paddington, the always dignified, well-meaning, but troublemaking bear from "darkest Peru." Young readers will enjoy this reissue of the 1962 classic, which includes some of Paddington's best adventures (or misadventures, depending) in the extensive Paddington canon, such as his wild ride on a power lawnmower and his appearance on a game show, where his unusual logic wins him the jackpot. Paddington is, understandably, a favorite character for kids, one they can truly relate to, as his best-laid, well-intentioned plans somehow go topsy-turvy. As always, Bond's prose is fun to read, with the solemn, serious Paddington providing humorous contrast to the absurd goings-on around him. Peggy Fortnum's spare, evocative, often witty line drawings are as wonderful as ever, more representative of Paddington's character than the new jacket art, which makes him look like a cute, cuddly stuffed toy--a portrait with which Paddington himself would take issue. Shelle Rosenfeld

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers India, 1998. Softcover. Book Condition: New. ?Even Paddington can?t come to much harm in half an hour,? said Mrs Brown optimistically. But he can manage a lot of other things in even less time ? like hanging Mr Curry?s lawnmower from a tree-top, or coming up through the bandstand floor during the ?Surprise Symphony? Then Paddington has a sticky time of it making toffee in Mrs Bird?s kitchen, and an even stickier time explaining what went wrong. And who else but Paddington could set Father Christmas?s beard on fire? Printed Pages: 144. Bookseller Inventory # 40702
