Paddington Turns Detective


Written by: Michael Bond
Illustrated by: Peggy Fortnum

Three classic Paddington Bear stories, by master storyteller Michael Bond, are brought together for the first time in this special collection for World Book Day.

Nothing is ever straightforward when Paddington is involved. Whether he is attempting detective work, helping to sail a boat or performing magic, ordinary things have a habit of becoming quite extraordinary!

You can’t beat good classic stories that still appeal to youngsters of today.’  – TCR75 read to GCR13, age 4
