In this book the stories were in Paddington's favour as usual, trying to catch up with the modern life, mentioning Oyster card and computers,.... However not so appealing as previous books and a bit cheesy sometimes.
Nevertheless we love Paddington and pamper him anyway.
I particularly wanted the books with the original (and best), Peggy Fortnum illustrations, which are as good as I remember.
My only criticism, inflation has taken over and Paddington's sixpence is now ten pence!
I can't recommend these books highly enough to everyone.
