    • Okay Recommendation Engine, I know you're just trying to get us into trouble again but it'll be fun! I'm in. And bring a jar of marmalade.

    • When the first trailer for that awful-looking Paddington movie appeared, my kids asked about Paddington and I described him in glorious detail and then I . . . realized something. I knew that Paddington was a book, I had always known this. But I had never read it! My experience with Paddington as a child was limited to the wonderful cartoon, which used to play on the early Disney Channel. If you're not familiar with the Paddington cartoon, you really must find it! the people are hand drawn, with [...]

    • This summer, I am attempting to balance my reading with some lighter fare. This is the perfect antidote to the intensity of the winter's books. Fun, frolicking, fantasy! What a wonderful bear!

    • Wow. And I mean WOW. This is a children’s book, so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone now, but it is a good book I can’t say I would recommend it to anyone now, but for children it is a fun, exciting read. I was in love with Paddington; I wished my parents would find a bear like that at the train station. Mr Brown coughed loudly. “It doesn’t seem a very exciting story,” he said, impatiently. He reached across and poked Paddington with his pipe. “Well I never,” he said, “I do belie [...]

    • So I read this book for my bookclub RECS and no it wasn't someone else who chose it, it was me!!! :DI really wish that Paddington had been introduced to me as a child, because even as an adult the cuteness got to me. There are 8 stories in this collection. My favourites were when Paddington screwed up the Underground, when he went shopping and the story with the painting. It was all very amusing, and just took me back to innocent times in my life. If you're a parent, then please introduce Paddin [...]

    • Dear Mr. Paddington,I am writing this to you. And I hope that you will read it so you know. I guess I'm just another fan of yours, but I thought I'd write and tell you so.You made me love you. I didn't want to do it. No. I didn't want to do it. You made me love you, and all the time you knew it. I'm fairly sure you knew it. You made me happy, sometimes you made me glad. But there were times, sir, you made me feel so mad.I think you're grand, that's true. Yes I do. Indeed I do. You know you made [...]

    • We meet Paddington for the first time at Paddington station where he sits, small and lonely, on his suitcase, wondering what to do after having travelled all the way from Darkest Peru in a lifeboat, surviving on a jar of marmelade.Luckily, he meets the Browns who take him in, feed him, care for him - and help him whenever he gets into trouble.I think the highest recommendation I can give for this book and for sweet little Paddington is, that I made my boyfriend laugh so hard he cried just by me [...]

    • I really thought this was going to be a picture book when I borrowed it from the library, but it ended up being considerably longer than expected and quite delightful. It’s funny that I’ve bought a Paddington Bear from the station once but had never read the books.

    • This is a lovely, charming story about a bear from Darkest Peru (TM) who lands at Paddington Station and is taken home by an average, middle-class London family. It's easy to see why Paddington is beloved the world around. He is sweet, curious, kind, and has a thousand-yard stare when people misbehave. And he loves marmalade. Baths, not so much. I never read these books as a child, but I watched the TV series (which is lovely) and I've been meaning to watch the films. In an afterword to the edit [...]

    • I had my first taste of Paddington Bear when I was 7 years old and read the first story. I loved it then and I still love it now. It's always nice to revisit childhood classics - and this is definitely one I'm glad I picked up again. It's like when you rewatch a kids movie that you haven't seen since you were young - you pick up on so many things that you didn't notice back then. I don't care that I am 21, I love this story. Michael Bond was a truly gifted man, and deserved his Paddington Statue [...]

      Paddington Bear is a much-loved children's character from the 50s, but not one I precisely grew up with. I always knew about Paddington, but mostly because of my older sisters. I don't remember seeing the show (I'm pretty sure there was a cartoon) or reading the books. What I do remember is this story:When I was about thirteen, we mated our kelpie sheepdog, Tess, with another farmer's kelpie. We got two male pups. One of my older sisters named them: one was called Paddington, the other, Bear. Th [...]

    • Check out Scott Reads It for reviews, giveaways & more! When I was a child, I was never introduced to Paddington Bear and there was one bear in my life and that was Winnie The Pooh. It wasn't until I saw promotions for the upcoming Paddington movie that I decided I needed to see what I had missed out on as a child. This is the type of book that I would've loved when I was younger -- the type of book that would get reread and reread until all of the pages became frayed and bent out of shape. [...]

      After battling through a huge variety of the old classic books recently, I was in the mood for some unchallenging, easy to digest and entertaining books. Paddington is all that and more. I love bears, and the idea of this super-polite but oft-in-trouble brown bear from Darkest Peru is one that instantly resonates. I must have read this a thousand times, and just like Winnie-the-Pooh (another bear), it’s one I could read every day forever.What’s actually lovely about it is that Paddington isn [...]

    • Found it funny when I was a kid.

    • I wanted to revisit this book after enjoying the recent films. I found it a charming read, with adventure, surprises and comic moments. A useful read for people of today, as it tells the story of how Paddington comes to live in a foreign country not understanding how things work, but is taken in and shown great kindness by the Brown family. He has excellent manners, speaks good English and always means well ( although numerous disasters occur). Therefore, everyone invariably grows to love him an [...]

    • In memory of the author who died yesterday, I gave my first Paddington book a try. It didn't go so well. I hate children's literature— but I am in my sixth decade so give me a break. LOL. I think I'll pull the Ted movie DVD off the shelf and enjoy it instead.

      4 saoBan đầu mình chỉ chấm cuốn này 3,5 sao thôi nhưng sau đó lại thấy như vậy thì khắc khe quá nên cho nó 4 sao luôn.Đây là cuốn sách đầu tiên về chú gấu Paddington, gồm có 8 câu chuyện nhỏ. Mấy truyện đầu nói thật là mình không thích chú ta cho lắm vì đi đến đâu Paddington cũng gây ra một mớ hỗn loạn ở nơi đó. Dù lúc nào kết thúc trò phá hoại của [...]

    • Nigdy nie byłam fanką Kubusia Puchatka, a dzięki dzieciom dowiedziałam się, że Miś Paddington także nie znalazł miejsca w moim sercu. Chyba mam ogólnie problem z misiami, a może tylko z brytyjskimi misiami? Nie wiem. Najważniejsze jednak, że synowi książki się podobały i namawiał mnie stale na kontynuację lektury. Co ciekawe, córce Paddington też nieszczególnie przypadł do gustu.Paddington to dziwak jakich mało. Przybywa do Wielkiej Brytanii z mrocznych zakątków Peru, c [...]

    • Libro acquistato subito il primo dell’anno, in circostanze straordinarie (leggasi tentativo di andare a vedere il film al cinema solo per finire in una situazione surreale con video pessimo, immagini in blocco e guasto alle apparecchiature che ha portato dopo venti minuti al rimborso del biglietto e all’esodo dal cinema) per lenire il dispiacere della bimba, e letto il pomeriggio stesso.Non conoscevo niente di Paddington, avevo intuito dal trailer del film che fosse qualcosa di comico per ba [...]

      Spicuiri din recenzia finala care se gaseste pe blogul meuA fost o dată un ursuleț venit din întunecatul Peru care mânca marmeladă de portocale în gara Paddington. Un domn, Brown, și o doamnă, tot Brown, l-au îndrăgit de cum l-au văzut. L-au îndrăgit atât de tare încât l-au luat acasă și l-au numit Paddington după numele gării în care s-au întâlnit. Și Paddington i-a iubit la rândul pentru că este un ursuleț deosebit de civilizat, dar care intră mai tot timpul în bel [...]

    • This was on my list of betterment. Paddington is just so loveable! He is so cheeky and gets away with a lot, I even found myself laughing to myself about some of the situations he gets himself into. I like how each chapter in the book was a new little story. It made it very easy to read and the stories do build upon what we already know about Paddington and the Brown's.In some places the book was quite dated and I feel some children would not pick up on this but the ones which do would need a bi [...]

    • Such a sweet and adorable children's book, and is very unique for it's sophistication.

    • After reading "All the Bright Places" *still crying*, the story about Paddington was rally good choice. This book was funny and sweet, and it made me laugh-that's what I really needed :))

    • Have fond memories of reading this as a child.Loved re-reading.Wonderful stories!

    • Paddington is more familiar to me as the 1987 or 1997 animated TV show, one of my favorites as a kid. Not sure which it was, but in any case I missed Tim Curry as Mr Curry, because children's shows are usually dubbed around here. For some reason my heart is happy about the thought that Curry is in a Paddington TV show (at first I confused Mr Brown with Mr Curry, which is a shame, because I'd like to see Tim Curry adopt a bear).Anywho, Paddington gets his name after London's Paddington Station, f [...]

    • Надзвичайно мила і добродушна книжка. Падінгтон - з тих героїв, які, потрапляючи в халепу з халеп, уміють вийти сухими з води, викрутитися, іноді навіть не маючи такої мети, все виходить якось випадково чи несподіваним чином. До того ж так кумедно, що хочеться розреготатися:)К [...]

    • I read Paddington because of an episode of Grand Tour that I watched the other day. Paddington was mentioned (fastest man who lives with a bear) and I realized that I had never read the books. Paddington sure gets into a lot of trouble. I wonder if he and Winnie are related. That would be a great crossover book.
