PADDINGTON AT LARGE
by Michael Bond Illustrated by Peggy Fortnum
There'll always be an England, but the old place has never been quite the same since the Brown children came across a small lost bear in London's Paddington Station.
When the neighbor's lawn mower disappears into the lofty branches of a tree; when a small furry face peers frantically out of the screen of the new TV set; when the spotless kitchen at 32 Windsor Gardens becomes a chaos of steam and spilled syrup; when a riot suddenly breaks out in the bargain basement; when a Christmas play imperceptibly takes leave of the script and soars off completely on its own, is it a part of a plot or a National Disaster?
No. It's just Paddington at Large. That well-meaning bear with a talent for trouble continues to fill the lives of the Brown family with unexpected adventures, and this newest book about him —perfect for family reading —will delight the growing multitude of Paddington fans.
