The Lovereading4Kids comment

Paddington's Big Suitcase is neatly packed with six colour storybooks starring everyone’s favourite bear, a gentle adventure in each. Paddington variously has fun at the fair, at Hampton Court (where he gets out of the maze in record time), at the zoo and even at the Palace. He also tries his hand at painting, and does a bit of spring cleaning. Paddington thoroughly deserves his standing as a real classic character for children and typically these little stories are full of charm and humour. They are a satisfying length for children just reading on their own, and perfect for bedtimes too. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Paddington's Big Suitcase by Michael Bond

Enjoy six hilarious picture books, all about Paddington - the nation's favourite bear, now a major movie star - in this special gift edition suitcase with carry-along handle. Paddington Bear is a distinguished small bear of earnest good intentions who gets drawn into mishap and adventure at every turn. Thankfully his great sense of logic and determination manage to get him out of most scrapes, albeit in perhaps some rather unconventional ways. Find out what happens when Paddington gets all the wrong kind of attention at the zoo, how he finds his way out of a maze, and how he 'helps out' around the house...with messy results!

The Paddington books contained in the suitcase are: Paddington and the Marmalade Maze Paddington and the Tutti Frutti Rainbow Paddington at the Palace Paddington at the Zoo Paddington Minds the House Paddington the Artist

About the Author

Michael Bond

Michael Bond 13 Jan 1926 - 28 June 2017. Born in Newbury, Berkshire, England he was educated at Presentation College, Reading. During World War II Michael Bond served in both the Royal Air Force and the Middlesex Regiment of the British Army. He began writing in 1945 and sold his first short story to a magazine called London Opinion. This experience helped him decide that he wanted to be a writer.

After the first Paddington book was accepted, Michael Bond went on to write a whole series and by 1967 his books were so successful that that he was able to give up his job with the BBC in order to become a full-time writer.

In 2015, Michael was awarded a CBE for his services to children’s literature, to add to the OBE he received in 1997. Michael celebrated his 90th birthday in January 2016. He is married with two adult children and lives in London, not far from Paddington Station.
