" I read this in on an afternoon, and it delighted me; childrens books always cheer me up. Paddington is a bit of a hairy version of a rogue, and has that childly innocence and flaws that I love. What I liked most, were all the other people in the story. They never reacted like we would react when we see a talking bear. They were all alright with it, and acted like he was a real person. A lovely, light read, children will probably like it, too. "
