“Paddington Here and Now” is the little kid Paddington books put into a chapter book for big kids.  Each chapter is a new story about Paddington the bear.  Paddington is a bear who lives in London with the Brown family.  For some reason that I didn’t understand they had a real live teddy bear living with them.   He did all sorts of things to help out around the house and had his own adventures which I liked.

Paddington and his adventures remind me a little of the Amelia Bedelia character that I love. Both of these story people get themselves into trouble and have adventures every day because they don’t understand things and they take things literally.

I liked the adventures in “Paddington Here and Now” by Michael Bond and thought it was kind of funny when Paddington had things happen to him.  But, I think the book was a little bit boring and slow sometimes.
