From The Publisher*Learn valuable life lessons from Paddington Bear himself in this inspirational book of kindness. The perfect gift for fans of the bear from Darkest Peru, who is now a major movie star. "Aunt Lucy taught me to say ‘please' and ‘thank you' when I'm out shopping, and to raise my hat whenever I meet someone I know." Whatever situation Paddington Bear finds himself in, he always responds with kindness. From arriving in London and winning the hearts of the Brown family, to sharing elevenses with Mr Gruber and lending a paw around the neighbourhood, he always tries to do his very best for others… even if there are a few well-intentioned mishaps along the way! Now you can learn how to be more like the much-loved bear from Darkest Peru in this uplifting collection of inspiring- often hilarious- quotes from the enduringly popular books by Michael Bond, with beautiful illustrations by the original Paddington illustrator, Peggy Fortnum.
