Padding­ton strikes again

Country Life Every Week - - Town & Country -

PADDING­TON is back, nearly 60 years af­ter he first ap­peared on chil­dren’s book­shelves. His nona­ge­nar­ian cre­ator, Michael Bond, has writ­ten a 15th novel about the Peru­vian bear, en­ti­tled Padding­ton’s Finest Hour, in which he at­tracts po­lice sus­pi­cion (again), per­forms magic tricks, gets onto a TV cook­ery con­test and man­ages to mes­merise a hyp­no­tist with one of his hard stares. It’s il­lus­trated by R. W. Al­ley and is pub­lished this month by Harpercollins (£12.99). KG
