It´s market day! Join Paddington Bear on his errands to the Portobello Market, where he greets the shopkeepers, collects his favorite items, and has a special treat with his friend, Mr. Gruber.
Paddington Bear has charmed readers for generations. Written in simple rhyme for younger fans, and paired with R.W. Alley´s lively art, this board book is a great introduction to Paddington and his friends.
Michael Bond began chronicling Paddington’s adventures in his first book, A Bear Called Paddington, published in 1958. Fortunately, bears don’t need much encouragement, and Paddington has since filled the pages of twelve further novels, a variety of picture books, and many other projects written for the young at heart. Paddington’s creator is still writing and lives in London, England, not far from Paddington Station, where it all began.
R. W. Alley has illustrated a number of books featuring Paddington Bear. He lives in Barrington, Rhode Island, with his wife, author Zoë B. Alley.
