"If your holiday plans include a trip to the capital, a guidebook is a must-have and Paddington's Guide to London does the job perfectly... As well as packing in all the landmarks, he even manages to track down the marmalade in Fortnum & Mason." Sunday Express

This book is really adorable! See London through Paddington's eyes. There are Lots of wonderful pictures, most, with our favorite bear, himself, in them. The book is narrated by Paddington. Children from other countries can now experience the place where their beloved Paddington has lived for many a year, as Mr. Gruber would say. I highly recommend this book. It is another triumph from Micheal Bond. My 12 year old granddaughter is really going to enjoy reading it and getting to see a bit of London. I'd, also, like to say that The Book Depository is the most wonderful online, international book store to buy from. All items come in excellent condition, are very well packaged and arrive at your door very promptly! Paddington would definitely shop here!show more
