Paddington Here and Now

Publisher: HarperCollins

Review

The small bear from Darkest Peru still keeps marmalade sandwiches under his hat (for use in emergencies), still lives with the Brown family, is still friends with Mr Gruber and still has an amazing knack for getting himself into trouble.

This beautifully presented, small format hardback, published to celebrate Paddington's 50th anniversary, contains seven brand new tales featuring everyone's favourite bear.

This time, among other adventures, Paddington has a close encounter with a policeman, explores the benefits of anti-burglar paint and has an unfortunate experience with a doorknob while trick or treating.

Pen and ink illustrations complement Paddington's naivety, which is as appealing as ever.
