A Bear Called Paddington, by Michael Bond. Originally published in 1958. 176 pages.
This is a guest post written by our 9-year-old daughter.
A Bear Called Paddington by Michael Bond is a funny, peculiar and entertaining book. It is one of my favorites.
Some of my favorite chapters are “A bear in hot water”, “A shopping expedition” and my all-time favorite, “Adventure at the seaside.”
In the “Adventure at the seaside”, Paddington gets lost at sea with only a bucket and a shovel. With his shovel he paddled, while he sat in the bucket. Luckily a fisher man saw him, caught him with his hook, and returned him to shore.
I would highly recommend this book.
