Product Description

Review

Praise for the Paddington series:

'I've always had great respect for Paddington… He is a British institution.' Stephen Fry

'Paddington has joined Pooh as one of the great bears of English children's literature.' The Teacher

'Michael Bond's accident-prone bear…has become one of the most enduring of children's characters.' The Bookseller

From the Back Cover

Stories of Paddington Bear have delighted children all over the world for fifty years.

Paddington doesn't intentionally turn his friend's wedding into an uproar by getting the wedding ring stuck on his paw. Nor does he mean Mr Curry to slip on his marmalade sandwich in the middle of an important golf shot. But these sort of things just happen to a bear like Paddington.

I loved Paddington as a child and have been reading the stories again with my little girl recently. I had forgotten how funny they were - this book contains the story that was my personal favourite as a child; the one where Paddington tries to cook Baked Alaska and gives it a completely new twist! Absolutely hilarious!

Format: Paperback
I loved the Paddington books, as a child. My imagination was captured by these stories of the orphaned bear found in a London railway station, who makes his home with the Brown family and their housekeeper Mrs Bird. Each book consists of a series of stories about the small bear, who gets himself into difficult situations, often due to misunderstandings or over-enthusiasm.

This book is eighth in the series but it's not necessary to have read any others. This one begins with Paddington being an usher at a friend’s wedding, rather to his family’s surprise. Further chapters see him trying to play golf, being mistaken for a foreign doctor, helping his best friend Mr Gruber to finish touch on his patio, and going carol singing. The stories are light but amusing; written for children of perhaps eight to ten years old, they’re not condescending and never use ‘simple’ language.

This would make an ideal bedtime read-aloud for any child from the age of about five and upwards. It appeals to both boys and girls, and if the conversation and events seem dated at times, they could provide a good starting point for discussions about life in the 1960s for an upper-middle class English family.

Four and a half stars, really.

I bought this book and others in the series for my 9 year old son. He's severely dyslexic and has only recently begun to enjoy reading. These stories are funny and the characters are all very likeable. It's completely harmless with nothing offensive, written in a similar style to Enid Blyton. My son and I both love this Paddington series. He also enjoyed watching episodes from the original tv series.
