  "The first time I read [The Chimes], my Father was still alive and I remembered he enjoyed reading it too. Dad liked the character 'Trotty Veck', and who wouldn't? 'Trotty' was the typical Dicksonian 'decent poor'. I had bought a centennial edition of Charles Dickens complete works when I was 20. Most people don't realize Dickens wrote other fine Christmas stories besides his famous [A Christmas Carol]. The characters which seemed, 40 years ago a little fantastic in their personalities, don't seem so today when I am approaching 60 years of age. The morals that I found uplifting in the pages then are as much or more so today. This volume also includes [A Christmas Carol] and [A Cricket on the Hearth]. "

A lonely toy bear on an empty shop shelf on Christmas Eve in 1956 first captured the attention of Michael Bond, who kindly shared Paddington with the world.
