Please look after this bear...

When a sweet, bedraggled bear appears in Paddington Station with “Please look after this bear” pinned to his coat, the Brown family gains a new family member—and infinitely more adventures.

Beschreibung

Paddington Bear had traveled all the way from Darkest Peru when the Brown family first met him on Paddington Station. Since then their lives have never been quite the same ... for ordinary things become quite extraordinary when a bear called Paddington is involved.

    After his Aunt Lucy moves into a home for retired bears, a small and rather sticky bear emigrates from darkest Peru with only a suitcase full of marmalade. The Brown family discover him at Paddington station and adopt him, and the bear (now rejoicing in the impressive name of Paddington) has lots of adventures across London which generally involve leaving sticky paw-prints all over the place, knocking things over, getting lost, and getting into trouble.It's not hard to see why this is a classic, beloved of generations of children. I spotted this book on sale for a minuscule sum while I was doing some Christmas shopping, and (being without children to buy it for) decided to indulge myself and revisit my childhood. I was very fond of my stuffed Paddington Bear - complete with blue duffel coat, red wellies and floppy hat - when I was about 4, and re-reading the stories was a nostalgic treat.

    What a thoroughly engaging and charming story. Takes me right back to my childhood!
    Everyone’s life needs a little Paddington bear adventure within it! And a marmalade sandwich to wash it down. Stephen Fry is superb as the storyteller! Complete with assorted voices and colour!
    Brilliant!!

    "Seeing that something was expected of it the bear stood up and politely raised its hat, revealing two black ears. 'Good afternoon,' it said, in a small clear voice ... The bear puffed out its chest. 'I'm a very rare sort of bear,' he replied importantly. 'There aren't many of us left where I come from.' 'And where is that?' asked Mrs Brown. The bear looked round carefully before replying. 'Darkest Peru. I'm not really supposed to be here at all. I'm a stowaway.’”What a joy to listen to Stephen Fry’s narration of A Bear Called Paddington. Perfection.The sweet little bear from darkest Peru is found on Paddington Station and taken in by the Brown family. Paddington is clumsy and always get into trouble. “Things are always happening to me – I’m that sort of bear!” , as he comments. But he can also quickly become indignant and loose his temper. As when he’s being wrongly accused. “I'm not a criminal,” said Paddington, hotly. “I'm a bear!” .Oh, yes, dear Paddington. You are that sort of bear. That’s why we love you.

    Classic children's book. Now I understand why Padington bears are sold in toy stores. Very human bear, quirky characters. I calculate I was 7 years old when it was written and can understand why he slipped under my radar.

    One of my best friends. Principled, curious and proud. Who wouldn't want to hang with a bear called Paddington?

    Maybe I should try this again some time. But I recall being bored, and a little annoyed. Maybe the toddler I had in the house at the time was enough?

    It has been a long time since I read this but I still remember the little bear who loved marmalade. Think it is time to re-read it!

    One of the best children's books I've read. It doesn't compete with the other bear, Pooh, but it's not similar. It's wonderful in a way all its own.

    Paddington and Stephen Fry? What more could I ask for?

    Paddington is found by the Brown family in Paddington Station, London, England. He's emmigrated from Peru. Paddington is new to England and has a way of getting into trouble everywhere he goes, though he doesn't quite mean to. His charming qualities and the loving Brown family help him with his "close calls" with trouble. A charming set of mischievous adventures in which each chapter is a new story. Therefore, I think it would be great for children who struggle with comprehending across chapters but have a higher reading level. I love Paddington and can't wait to get back to London to get my own bear in Paddington Station! (Oh yes, there's a cart selling them as soon as you get off the trains arriving in the station.)

    Very cute; I can see why I loved these books as a kid. It's quite a rare (modern) kids' book that is essentially plotless, though; you could exchange the second half of this book with any other Paddington installment and no one would be any the wiser. The little bear's adventures are incredibly episodic! He has a child's logic, though, which is very engaging, and it's probably one of the rare examples of a proper book series built around the familiarity of "hooks," like a sitcom (Paddington's literal approach and love of marmalade, visits to Mr. Gruber, Mr. Curry's stinginess, etc.) - the sort of thing you often encounter in early children's storybooks, but rarely otherwise. That explains both the appeal, I think, as well as the age range of the readership; there's few books (the Winnie-the-Pooh books, perhaps) that are perfectly pitched at 6-year-olds: no longer the realm of picture books, but not yet the complicated realm of the children's novel. "Paddington" still holds up, even if the age of one-and-sixpence pocket money is now long gone.

    When I was a kid, we watched the Paddington tv show, but I'd never read the book. This classic story is sweet and funny and Stephen Fry is an excellent reader. This would be a great car-listening choice for families with young children.

    When I was a girl, I owned a stuffed Paddington Bear, complete with hat and blue duffle coat. He and Curious George went everywhere with me. When the Bishop visited our small town church, my grandpa even arranged for them to meet and be blessed by the Bishop. That adventure reminds me of the many adventures of Paddington described in this book.This book is one of the [1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up]. I found a lovely 50th anniversary edition at my library (great drawings) and quickly found myself laughing at the antics of Paddington. As he states matter-of-factly in the beginning of the book, "Things are always happening to me. I'm that sort of bear."

    Part A/ClassicBond, M. (1958). A bear called Paddington. New York: Bantum Doubleday Dell.Paddington, a stowaway bear from Darkest Peru, is taken in by a family when they find him sitting alone at the Paddington Station, wearing a sign that states, “Please look after this bear. Thank you.” Adjusting to his new life in England, Paddington frequently finds himself in interesting predicaments. The sketched illustrations add to the reader’s visualizations of Paddington’s small disasters.Readers are bound to love the endearing character of Paddington Bear, and will equally love the innocent predicaments he stumbles upon. Another book from this decade is Little Bear by Else Minarik and illustrated by Maurice Sendak.

    This is a fun little book about a bear who is more like a little person. He's silly in his serious explorations of England, adopted by a kind family with two delighted children.

    I picked this up to read because my twenty-one year old daughter told me she still loves them and recently reread them. After reading it, I can see why. So warm and personable. I love the Brown family and their reception of Paddington, I love Paddington and his reception of life's experiences. I shall be reading more of these, books that make you laugh out loud should be read often.

    Charming classic about a peruvian bear who turns up in Paddington station wearing a tag that says "Please take care of this bear". He enters the Brown family and proceeds to wreak havoc in every imaginable way through actions as simple as taking a bath. A bear with a sharp eye for a bargain, he also has an enormous heart, but nevertheless always gets in over his head, just as children do. And he invariably gets in trouble with his neighbor, like a furry but well-intentioned Dennis the Menace. Essentially timeless. The first volume in the series and the best.
