From School Library Journal
Gr 2–5—The story featuring the marmalade-loving bear was first published in 1958 by William Collins & Son (now known as HarperCollins). The classic tale begins when a bear from Peru winds up in London's Paddington Station and is subsequently adopted by the Brown family (humans from the Notting Hill area). Unfailingly polite and affecting a rather shabby charm—accomplished in no small part by Peggy Fortnum's delightful line drawings—Paddington went on to have dozens of adventures over the years, spawning more than 50 titles translated into over 30 languages. A Bear Called Paddington covers the initial discovery of the bear at the train station and his first few days acclimating to life with the Browns as well as numerous episodic chapters filled with humorous mishaps. More About Paddington continues on a similar theme and includes episodes of the bubbling bear attempting to help with interior decorating, assisting at a bonfire party, and celebrating his first Christmas. With a major motion picture coming out in January 2015, a whole new generation of young readers will be introduced to the well-meaning, but ever accident-prone, bear.

I was immediately enthralled!
For several years, I had to have my toast with orange marmalade!
I have been fortunate enough to be able to pass on my love for Padddington to my 11yo daughter.
I read the stories to her as she cuddles up next to me.
A rare chance to put cell phones and mp3 players away and just bond.
I remember every story as if it was yesterday.
Please treat your child to this delightful series!
Give my regards to Aunt Lucy at The Home for Retired Bears in Peru
and "Please look after this bear".
Just about a perfect book for a 6 year old. Really, this is the best book I have gotten for him. When they are ready to move on from Curious George, this is next step.
