Paddington Bear becomes a celebrity when he takes portraits of the Brown family with a very old camera. Thanks to the unique results, a local shop puts the photos on display. And that's just the first adventure this extraordinary bear finds himself in. From wallpapering to mystery-solving, Paddington does it all with the sense of wonder and playful charm that readers have come to love. First published in 1959, More about Paddington is the second novel by Michael Bond chronicling the adventures of this classic character. Paddington has warmed the hearts of generations of readers with his earnest good intentions and humorous misadventures. This brand-new paper-over-board edition of the classic novel contains the original text by Michael Bond and illustrations by Peggy Fortnum.
“I expect Mummy and Mrs. Bird gave you ten pence because they don’t want Daddy to do any more decorating,” she explained. “He always starts things and never finishes them. And I expect Daddy gave you one because he didn’t want to finish it, anyway. Now they’re getting a proper decorator in, so everyone’s happy!” Paddington sipped his cocoa thoughtfully. “Perhaps if I did another room I’d get another thirty pence,” he said. “Oh, no you don’t,” said Judy sternly. “You’ve done quite enough for one day. If I were you I shouldn’t mention the word decorating for a long time to come.” “Perhaps you’re right,” said Paddington sleepily as he stretched out his paws. “But I was at a loose end.”
