We liked A Bear Called Paddington because it is very funny. Our favorite part is when Paddington performed a magic trick that caused a man to sit on an egg. It is also a very touching story because Paddington tries to help everyone in his new family. A Bear Called Paddington reminds us of our pets. They get into a lot of mischief, just like Paddington does. This book is similar to books in the Babysitters Club series. The children in these books try to help people, but like Paddington, end up making the situation worse.
We recommend A Bear Called Paddington for grades two through six because it is a book everyone will enjoy.
