Hidden in the Shelves is a feature where I show off a discovery (or rediscovery) that I came across while shelving books for work.
A Bear Called Paddington by Michael Bond
Mr. and Mrs. Brown first met Paddington, a most endearing bear from Darkest Peruon a railway platform in London. A sign hanging around his neck said, “Please look after this bear. Thank you” So that is just what they did.
From the very first night when he attempted his first bath and ended up nearly flooding the house, Paddington was seldom far from imminent disaster. Jonathan and Judy were delighted with this havoc and even Mr. and Mrs. Brown had to admit that life seemed to be more filled with adventure when there was a bear in the house.
Summary from Goodreads. Normally I would say that this isn’t my type of book. Sure I enjoy cute, classic kid’s books from time to time but I never really love them as an adult. BUT I thought that about Winnie the Pooh and ended up completely loving the book. I think that’s enough for me to give this book a shot at some point.
Have you read this before? Is it good?
