Description

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! Tiny books of potted quotes from various pieces of classic literature are ten a penny, particularly if the characters originate from the Hundred Acre Wood. In 2015, Michael was awarded a CBE for his services to children's literature, to add to the OBE he received in 1997. 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.

I felt teary as I read the lovely words and remembered again why I have loved this little bear for over thirty years. 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? How to Be More Paddington is more celebration of this fantastic character's warmth than sincere self-help but it is incredibly special nonetheless. From winning the hearts of the Brown family, to sharing elevenses with Mr Gruber and lending a paw around the neighbourhood, Paddington always tries to do his very best for others…even if there are a few well-intentioned mishaps along the way!The one aspect that I wish that the book had captured was the way that Paddington also stands up for himself. During World War II Michael Bond served in both the Royal Air Force and the Middlesex Regiment of the British Army.

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. We bought it for a couple of friends for Christmas and I had a flick through to check the content was good enough! 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.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. This is an extremely minor point though and I can understand why this aspect of his character would be trickier to include in a book that is just a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day. Peggy Fortnum's wonderful illsutrations are accompanied by lines from various Paddington books by Michael Bond.

A collection of Paddington’s thoughts, other people’s comments about him, and general words of wisdom from our favourite Peruvian bear. He takes delight in the small things, he is always grateful, he gives everything his best shot, he is unfailingly polite. 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. I’m thoroughly embarrassed to admit that this was my first experience of reading about Paddington bear. I have gathered up postcard images of some of my favourite Fortnum illustrations but it is wonderful to finally have them in one place.

This will be what I turn to when in need of cheering up, or in need of comfort, and who else to provide this but Paddington himself? 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. 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.
