The hilarious adventures of everyone’s favourite bear, Paddington, now a major movie star!
“My legs are a bit short for the pole vault!” repeated Paddington hotly. “But they’ve always been that way.”
Somehow Paddington always manages to find himself in unusual situations. So it is no surprise when he gets into a spot of bother with some shaving cream, causes a London bus to be evacuated, and is mistaken for a famous Peruvian hurdler by a film crew. There’s never a dull moment when a certain bear is around!
For more than sixty years, Paddington Bear has touched the hearts of adults and children worldwide with his earnest good intentions and humorous misadventures.
Michael Bond's book 'Paddington at the Palace' was a Sunday Times bestseller w/c 19-09-2022.

In this book the stories were in Paddington's favour as usual, trying to catch up with the modern life, mentioning Oyster card and computers,.... However not so appealing as previous books and a bit cheesy sometimes.
Nevertheless we love Paddington and pamper him anyway.
I particularly wanted the books with the original (and best), Peggy Fortnum illustrations, which are as good as I remember.
My only criticism, inflation has taken over and Paddington's sixpence is now ten pence!
I can't recommend these books highly enough to everyone.
