Give me a bear and you’ll make me happy! Teddy bears are my absolute favorites and bears in general make my heart go crazy. I just love bears so it was pretty obvious I’d love Paddington!
Paddington is from darkest Peru. He went all the way to London with his favorite hat and suitcase. He is polite and adorable, really curious and smart. Everyone meeting him for the first time is in love with him. It’s impossible not to love Paddington. Impossible!
“Things are always happening to me. I’m that sort of bear.”
I saw the movie and his adventures were a tiny bit over the top so I was afraid he was going to be super goofy in the book, making one disaster after the other. That was not the case. He is involved in many misunderstandings and peculiar adventures but they are not the disasters I was hoping not to read about. Paddington is adorable!
“It’s nice having a bear about the house.”
I am so glad he met by chance the Browns at Paddington station. They are really the nicest family he could’ve met.
I can’t wait to read more about his exploits and get to know him better. I think he is lovely and I will treasure him from today on.
