Book Description

9 April 2009 BBC Childrens Audio
This work contains four dramatised stories starring everyone's favourite bear, introduced by Michael Hordern, who narrated the original "BBC TV" series "Paddington". It includes "Please Look After This Bear", "A Bear in Hot Water", "A Disappearing Trick" "Paddington and the Amateur Dramatics". 'Please look after this bear' said the label around Paddington's neck, so the Brown family take him home and do just that. Life with Paddington, however, is full of surprises - as you'll find out in these four great dramatised stories!

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings 26 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have fond memories of Paddington and looked forward to listening to this with my children.

My six-year old enjoyed the first story about when Paddington is found, but my 4 year old wasn't interested.

The final two stories, particularly "The Amateur Dramatics" story, which is about Paddington doing sound effects at a play, was just too grown-up/old-fashioned for them and very difficult to understand.

We still enjoy the first story but I'm disappointed with the rest - seems an odd choice of stories to put on the CD - no continuity there.

5.0 out of 5 stars We loved this. 17 July 2010
By Ing.M
Format:Audio CD
Bought to listen to during a long road trip from London to Venice with our 3 children (6, 4, 2yrs). This was their introduction to Paddington, and they are hooked - we all loved it, and listened to it repeatedly. We highly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars voices 7 April 2010
Format:Audio CD
My children have really enjoyed listening to this cd but I found the voices slightly too theatrical - especially Mrs Brown. This is only a mild criticism and shouldn't put you off, I expect I'm just so used to Michael Hordern narrating.

5.0 out of 5 stars From my childhood 17 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD
These are the definitive audios of Paddington - the voices are perfect and we all love them as a family. I just wish there were more with Michael Horden.

My kids (1, 3 and 5) love this one but the three story (I think 7 disc) A Bear Called Paddington: Complete & Unabridged is better value. The kids love the Stephen Fry reading too.

Same comments as applied to the Reluctant Dragon, but I read stories of Paddington to my own children opreviously and I've no doubt it was well received.

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a joy
These stories are so wonderful and it's such a joy being able to pass the knowledge of them to my own children. Who doesn't love a bear that talks and eats marmalade.
