Paddington Bear in the Gardenby Michael Bond
Synopses & Reviews
There is nothing that Paddington Bear loves better than living with the Browns...except maybe marmalade! But now Mr. and Mrs. Brown have given him something else to love at number thirty-two Windsor Gardens — his very own garden. Paddington sets to work in an attempt to create the most interesting garden he can. In typical Paddington style, hapless mischief leads to blind luck, and his garden turns out to be a most unique site indeed!
Paddington Bear has charmed readers for more than forty years. Now another generation of fans can Join the beloved bear from Darkest Peru on a variety of adventures written by Michael Bond and illustrated by artist R. W. Alley
Paddington writes a list of all the nice things he can think of about being a bear and living with the Browns. When he gets to the part about the lovely backyard garden, Paddington wonders: Has he done all he can to keep the garden growing? Full-color illustrations.
