Not loving it.,
This review is from: Paddington Here and Now (Hardcover)
I bought this on the strength of its nomination for the Roald Dahl prize. I thought it would be funny and up to date modern childrens fiction. It isn't. I was bored. So were my kids. Sorry, just never 'got' Paddington. Maybe my dislike of Marmite has tarnished my views?

I think the "Marmite" rather shows how much attention the Paddington stories got! Also, I can't help feeling that if you read the stories with your children in the same frame of mind as you placed your Amazon Review then I am not surprised they didn't "get" it. Children will pick up on that sort of attitude very quickly! Your loss however, as they are wonderful entertaining stories.
