Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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.” AudioFile
“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.” Kirkus Reviews
