It's been too long since I last read this, but I've always loved the Paddington books. ( )

So. Yeah. I read this to my kiddo on the assumption it would be nice and wholesome and, above all, CUTE.

I suppose it fits the bill. In a way. In an old generation way. In one of those generations that are sleeping the nice comfy warm dreams of the ever-cozy and drowsy lives that can accept only a tiny little smidge of fantasy in their staid, solid, middle-class English suburbia.

I had to stop the book about ten times with my daughter because either she or I fell asleep on it.

It may be very cute in its way and it may be a real hit for some people, but lordy, to my girl and me... this was BORING.


Doing my part to ruin yall's nostalgia. ;0
Peace-out! ;) ( )

It doesn't have a narrative through-line like the films, but the slapstick stories are pleasant enough. ( )

Dedication
First words
Mr and Mrs Brown first met Paddington on a railway platform.
Quotations
Things are always happening to me. I'm that sort of bear.
He was just thinking what a lot of excitement pressing one small button could cause when a heavy hand descended on his shoulder.
Paddington had a very persistent stare when he cared to use it. It was a very powerful stare. One which his Aunt Lucy had taught him and which he kept for special occasions.
