“I’m a patriotic man, said Mr Brown, but I draw the line at bears playing the national anthem at 6 am. Especially on the xylophone.”

Paddington continues to be “up to something”. Our troublemaker from Darkest Peru have all the best intentions, but something always goes wrong. Mr. Brown raises his voice, Mrs. Brown flees to Paddington’s defense.

Gentle and heartwarming humor, I just love Paddington with his childlike wonder and curiosity and more grown up pride and “hard stares”. Stephen Fry’s reading is impeccable.

More fun adventures of Paddington Bear. I especially liked the chapter where he decorates his room. Seriously - I feel like that sometimes when I'm doing some DIY. Some days nothing goes right.

A small bear lives with a British family.

3/4 (Good).

It's more cartoonish and considerably less memorable than the first book.

More About Paddington is a truly delightful read. I find his adventures most amusing. In his own words "Things happen to me - I'm that sort of bear!"
Paddington is kind hearted, but not everything goes to plan, despite his confidence! I particularly enjoyed chapter two, A Spot of Decorating - it's absolutely hilarious, and I can imagine it will be a favourite chapter for many readers. Yes, Paddington encounters lots of adventures, and his antics are fun and lovable! I look forward to reading more stories and adventures about this delightful character.… (more)
