Site news .... 2023
1 ) The site has a new url of tvherbs.com
Largely as a result of a change of listing policy by Google. Same site,just a different url.
2 ) The main font for the entire site has been changed to the one you're now reading.
It's just as mainstream as its predecessor.
But its a much more recent introduction that offers 2 main advantages over its older counterpart ....
1. It's more adaptable to all the different types of viewing hardware we use now.
2. It's generally considered to be a nicer reading experience.
New book .... 2020
After decades of inactivity .... a fairly seismic event for this particular bit of Michael Bond's back-catalogue.
The result of a re-appraisal of his other work following the success of the 2 Paddington movies.
A toe-in-the-water release to see if it could still strike a chord with a modern audience.
But ..... Fast forward 3 years .....
And,sadly,it would seem it didn't - or,at least,not in sufficient numbers.
Because it's been unearily quiet ever since.
But,for the record ....
It was a mix of old and new.
With a collection of the original stories,but all accompanied by brand new illustrations.
Publication date ( worldwide )- 12th November 2020. Hardback .... 224 pages. ISBN: 9780007982974
