My dad once said to me, "You give a lot of books three stars." I do.
I picked this one up because Paddington was the answer to one of our trivia night questions. I missed this one and realized I didn't know anything about Paddington beyond darkest Peru, marmalade sandwiches and the train station.
It's a marshmallow book (sweet and light). Each chapter reads almost like a short story. Paddington has some interesting adventures, but I wasn't interested enough to seek out any more of his books.
