    I enjoyed this book. It was funny when the bath overflowed and the map of Peru turned into a sea of foam. It was excellent. And it’s funny that he likes marmalade and tea. That’s not very realistic!

    My favourite part of this book is when Paddington he’s on the roof and then the granny comes and knocks the bad guy of the building and that’s and then she says something funny

    Paddington is a very sad and adventurous book – the sad bit is
    when his uncle dies in a storm but the good bit is that he finds
    a family.
