Paddington has warmed the hearts of generations of readers with his earnest good intentions and humorous misadventures. This paperback edition of the classic novel contains the original text by Michael Bond and illustrations by Peggy Fortnum.
Paddington doesn’t intentionally turn his friend’s wedding into an uproar by getting the wedding ring stuck on his paw. Nor does he plan for Mr. Curry to slip on his marmalade sandwich in the middle of an important golf shot. But these sorts of things and more just happen when Paddington goes to town.
First published in 1968, Paddington Goes to Town is the eighth novel chronicling the adventures of Michael Bond's beloved classic character, Paddington Bear.
About the Author
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.
