Product Description

Review

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

From the Publisher

Mr. and Mrs. Brown first met Paddington--a most endearing bear from Darkest Peru--on a railway platform in London. A sign hanging around his neck said, "Please look after this bear. Thank you" So that is just what they did.

From the very first night when he attempted his first bath and ended up nearly flooding the house, Paddington was seldom far from imminent disaster. Jonathan and Judy were delighted with this havoc and even Mr. and Mrs. Brown had to admit that life seemed to be more filled with adventure when there was a bear in the house. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

He is so clumsy, that anyone will laugh. I read all of the Paddington books I could find as a kid, and I read them again as I got older. And I would read them again, and again and again. This is a very good reason to have kids, so you can buy this book. Too bad he has become some sort of commercial bear, he is much greater as a little clumsy bear trying to please all the people.

Format: Paperback
When Mr and Ms Brown invited into their home a stowaway bear called Paddington, I don't think they, along with anybody, would have expected this marmalade-lover's adventures to have a great impact into their lives, and ours, nor that he would become, in our world that is, a popular character in children literature and British culture. Now I heard some cynical people around me (Mister and Miss Curry) calling Paddington Bear clumsy, dim-witted and the most stupid creature that the world has ever seen. However I think those cynical people are wrong and should take a note from this young bear's golden heart, decency and good manners.

It is in this book that we get to find Paddington's first adventures around London as he experiences adventures at the theater, in the Underground (or Subway),in a large shop, at the beach and at his new home. It is in this book that we get to see the most recurring characters and locations that occur in the Paddington Bear series like Portobello Market, Mr Gruber and I am very pleased that the Kindle edition hs kept Peggy Fortnum's original ink illustrations, which I am very fond of for their energy and the clear expressions of the characters.

In the end, this book is the first in the long classical series of Paddington Bear, who comes from Darkest Peru and who loves marmalade sandwiches.

Format: Hardcover
Classic story of Paddington the Bear who comes to live with the Brown family in London. Most children know the stuffed animal but haven't heard the escapades. This issus is a welcome addition to children's libraries. Very good, humorous, fun animals, with good black and white illustrations. Recommended for K through the 4th grade students.

Format: Hardcover
A Bear Called Paddington is a great book about a bear about the size of a teddy bear. He is funny and takes every thing so seriously. He gets into some pretty funny messes. I recromend this book to people of all ages who love humerous and exciting books.
