The Lovereading4Kids comment

The film of Paddington ™ brings new stories about the favourite bear from Peru. In this book version Jeanne Willis brilliantly captures the exciting new adventures that Paddington is drawn into. On arrival in London Paddington is found and taken home by the Brown family. But, at the same time, he is noticed by Millicent who has a much more sinister motive for taking an interest in the small, lonely bear. Millicent is a taxidermist at the Natural History Museum and she is sure Paddington would make a great addition to her stuffed animal collection. Can Paddington avoid such a bleak future? ~ Julia Eccleshare
