Quotes & Awards

  • “Stephen Fry’s Paddington is delightfully grave and proper, earnestly well-meaning in spite of his frequent misadventures both domestic and around London. Fry is facile with myriad British accents from Cockney cabbies to Portobello Road shopkeepers, and his comic timing and subtle delivery accentuate the book’s sly humor.”

  • “Utter and lovable nonsense this—but somehow one reads with enchantment and credulity about Paddington and his marmalade, Paddington and the sticky cream buns, Paddington and a succession of mishaps, all in good faith. It’s all very English—but then so are Alice and Mary Poppins and Peter Pan and a host of other favorites of make-believe…This is the sort of book best shared with a family read aloud.”

    " I don't think I ever actually read this as a child, but enjoyed reading it with my kids. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Yakira | 2/14/2014

    " This is the sweetest, funniest, BESTEST book to ever be written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Seth | 2/6/2014

    " I really enjoyed this series (that which I read anyway). Though the writing is formulaic in nature and doesn't really change much, Paddington never disappoints. He is always getting into something in his ignorant, innocent fashion. These books aren't very deep or thought-provoking, but they make a good read for younger readers and those who enjoy plays on words. Very similar to series such as Miss Pickerel, Marty the Martian, Amelia Bedelia, etc. "
