About This Item

London: Collins, 1970. First edition of the ninth title in Bond's classic Paddington series. Octavo, original cloth. Illustrated by Peggy Fortnum. Signed by the author on the half-title page, "With all good wishes Michael Bond." Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a few small closed tears. Paddington is as irresistile as Peggy Fortnum's drawings of him that illustrate the book" (Christian Science Monitor).

Synopsis

For most people, “taking the air” is merely taking a simple stroll, but as all true Paddington admirers might expect, nothing is simple for Paddington. As usual, though, he retains his talent for turning his sticky moments into great triumph. Whether he’s attempting to tailor pants for grouchy Mr. Curry, or embarking on a thrilling career as a mystery detective, Paddington is sure to find trouble—and fun—wherever he goes.
