    Paddington is so funny I love this book it is my dad’s favourite book and that is not the reason i love this book.

  17. krussell says:

    Paddington is a good book and the movie is also good – it’s really well done and what I really like in the movie is when Paddington was at his own station and the parents saw him just sitting there on his own.

  18. Mr Milne says:

    I love everything about Paddington: in fact, he’s my joint favourite bear along with Winnie the Pooh. I love that Paddington had a ‘Please look after this bear’ label tied around his neck when Mr and Mrs Brown found him at Paddington Station, and that he likes marmalade so much, and that he gets into so many scrapes without ever meaning to; and I love his unfailing politeness and his repertoire of hard stares for use against anyone making too much of a fuss about things. Basically, an extremely nice and fun bear to live with or have as a friend!
