Peggy Morgan (Catholic Library World, December 2009 (Vol. 80, No. 2))
This book is a commemorative edition published in celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of Paddington’s first appearance. Fortnum’s illustrations are now presented in full color and several illustrations that were left out of the original have been included. It opens with a newly penned introduction from Bond who describes the genesis of the endearing bear who was inspired by a “small furry object” on the mantelpiece of Bond’s one-room flat. That one small toy inspired numerous stories about a loveable bear who became one of the family after Mr. and Mrs. Brown saw him at Paddington Station wearing a sign that read, “Please look after this bear. Thank you.” Little did they know what adventures lay ahead. In quiet, yet engaging prose this volume’s eight tales transport readers to the England of fifty years ago where, no doubt, any bear from darkest Peru would have had a hard time adjusting to urban life. Each tale is a delight in itself and part of the fun is the delicious anticipation of each hilarious mishap. This volume would adapt well to reading aloud to pre- and early readers and can be enjoyed independently by children who are making the transition to chapter books. This edition is highly recommended for any library needing to update its Paddington titles. 2008, Houghton Mifflin, 144 pp., $20.00. Ages 2 to 8.
