Review: I absolutely adored this book when I was younger and have always been a Paddington Bear fan. I thought that I would pick up this book again on Amazon for £3.49 Kindle Edition and give it a good, nostalgic read!

If you do not know who Paddington Bear is, he is a bar from Peru that travelled to London, United Kingdom. He was found at Paddington Station and that was where he got his name from. In this book, you will follow him on his adventures of finding a family, discovering new experiences and many more..

It didn’t disappoint. I still had the same warm feeling that I had when I was younger reading this. The familiarity is great and it has made me realise how well the recent film was made too – they stuck to some of the exact stories and it just worked so well!
This book is great for all ages, especially kids as it isn’t one whole story in itself. It is a compilation of short stories featuring Paddington and the Brown family.

I feel like I cannot say any additional information on this, it really is a ‘you have to read it’ kind of book and most of you have probably read this throughout your childhood.

Did you use to read this when you were younger?
Would you give them another read now?
How did you feel about the film?
