Paddington’s Finest Hour review with Harper and Collins summer tour

 

Fall in love with Paddington again with Paddington’s Finest Hour

 

This summer I had the pleasure of teaming up with Harper and Collins as part of their summer reads book tour. Myself and 10 other bloggers are sharing some of the best books to get your children inspired and reading over the summer holiday.ย We were delighted to be reading Paddington’s Finest Hour by Micheal Bond. This beloved bear does it again with a run in with the local police, a stint on a TV cooking show and an appearance on stage with a hypnotist.

Sadly Micheal Bond the creator of this famous little bear passed away just recently at the age of 91. Micheal came up with the idea for Paddington on Christmas Eve whilst shopping in London. He saw a bear on a shelf in Selfridges store and he felt sorry for it. He took him home as a present for his wife where he was named Paddington as the couple lived near Paddington station at the time.ย In 1997 Micheal Bond was honoured an OBE for his services to children’s literature.

 

“Please look after this bear, thank you” Micheal Bond

“Bears always fall on their feet”

Who does not have a memory of Paddington from there childhood? Everyone I spoke too has said “I love Paddington” from old and young alike.

Myself as a small child had a Paddington bear, he had a little suitcase with felt sandwiches in and red wellie boots. Everybody knows the tune to the TV series and remembers with laughter the crease of his hair when he removed his hat.

In fact one of my friends said she used to rush home from school for the show in hope he would take his hat off!

My Nan had a beloved Paddington bear and we took him out for a trip to London. Whilst nestling him amongst the telephone boxes I thought I would get some strange stares much like Paddington would give, but no! everyone proclaimed how sweet ” I love Paddington ” and joined me in taking photos.

Paddington’s Finest Hour

From the first book ” a bear called Paddington” to “Paddington’s finest hour” not much has changed for Paddington . This cute little bear still has his same quirky little way’s, his cute outfit and his witty way of thinking. The books are written with such humour it is hard to not to fall in love with this little bear from Peru.

On running an errand to post a letter for Mr and Mrs Brown Paddington looks very suspicious and get in to a bit of bother with the local police.

” The word ‘marmalade’ kept cropping up” added by someone else “It could be a code word of some kind”

I love the way Paddington is so eager to please, helping Mr curry in the garden was no mean feat. His conversation with the neighbour Mr Curry had us in fits. He is just like a small child not getting the right end of the stick and always putting his foot in it.

His stint in the TV cooking show is so funny but somehow again Paddington is a success.

“A marmalade sandwich” repeated Sir Percivel. “whats it doing on the top of your head?”

Paddington even goes on a trip to the dry cleaners where he is bemused by the trend of holes in jeans. ( so am I ) Next stop a he pops to Portobello Road to stock up on Buns.

Lastly a trip to the theatre that sees him on stage with a hypnotist. When Paddington gives him the best of his darkest Peru stares, you will be rather surprised at the results.

“Bear’s stares last for a long time, but they don’t last forever”

    Noddy holds a special place in my heart as my Grandma bought some Noddy books at a jumble sale and taught me to read from them before I started school.
    It started a lifelong passion for books and reading which I am now encouraging in my grandchildren with Nan’s library ๐Ÿ™‚
