Congratulations to Illustrator R.W. Alley!
Paddington Storybook Collection is the Rhode Island submission for the National Book Festival in Washington DC on September 1, 2018.
About the Book
Michael Bond’s classic character, Paddington Bear, has warmed the hearts of generations of readers with his earnest good intentions and numerous misadventures.
In this collection of six classic stories, Paddington’s nose for adventure leads him into one sticky situation after the next. But with a little curiosity, the best of intentions, and a marmalade sandwich to spare, this beloved bear is a story-time favorite. Join Paddington as he explores a carnival, performs some magic, tries his paw at painting, and more!
This collection includes the complete text and art of six Paddington books in one hardcover bind-up. The books included are: Paddington Bear and the Busy Bee Carnival, Paddington and the Magic Trick, Paddington’s Day Off, Paddington in the Garden, Paddington at the Circus, and Paddington’s Prize Picture.
