Summary

"Bears like Paddington are very rare," says Mrs Bird, "and a good thing too, or it would cost us a small fortune in marmalade."

It's a good thing for lots of reasons that bears like Paddington are rare. Whether it is his attempts at home decorating, detective work, or photography, the bear from Darkest Peru causes his own special brand of chaos.

Fantastic family listening

What did you like most about More about Paddington?

This set of stories is particularly charming and funny and had all of us in stitches many times over (ages range from 7-39!) "Mr Briggs and his chilled marrow" will stay with us forever. Brilliantly read by Stephen Fry.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Obviously Paddington and his relationships with a host of very distinct individuals.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Definitely Paddington eaves-dropping on the builders.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Mind your marrows!

Any additional comments?

Absolutely superb for young and old...

Stephen Fry and the Brown family. That’s a Yes!

As Bernard Cribins did for the audio books of a generation ago. Stephen Fry does Mr Gruber especially proud.

In this particular volume of autobiography he tries his paws at photography, 'home improvements ' and detection. Discovers small Peruvian bears and snow are not always necessarily a good mix and experiences Bonfire night and Christmas for the very first time.

Paddington

Wonderfully narrated by Stephen Fry. I'd forgotten how funny the Paddington books are. Highly recommended for laugh out loud entertainment.
