Paddington at Large? As in Paddington on the lamb? What crime could that cute little Snuggles-doppelganger have possibly committed?
I can't believe i never read these before, each volume in the 12 book set i have is a delight, this is number 5. Mr Brown (Paddington to you and me)has more fantastic everyday adventures with a spot of gardening and an impromptu trip on a lawnmower. Next up is a day out in the park with Mr Gruber, and the bandstand, it is never going to go smoothly with Paddington around. Then the Browns get a new televisoin set, and Paddington catches an intruder in the house. Paddington then gathers everyone r ...more

Paddington's answers to the questions on the game show were excellent and I rate them as the funniest moment in the book. As always the illustrations by Peggy Fortnum are lovely. They add a lot to the story!!
I love Paddington.. and this was a humorous and great book
I really enjoyed this series (that which I read anyway). Though the writing is formulaic in nature and doesn't really change much, Paddington never disappoints. He is always getting into something in his ignorant, innocent fashion. These books aren't very deep or thought-provoking, but they make a good read for younger readers and those who enjoy plays on words. Very similar to series such as Miss Pickerel, Marty the Martian, Amelia Bedelia, etc.

I didn't like this book as much as the other ones though. It is still a nice story, but still not as great as the others. I don't think this is the first one, but I could be mistaken. You really don't have to read them in order if you would like to read the series. My favorite one is "A Bear Called Paddington", although I have only read about three of the stories. I would recomend them to slower readers and no people that like long novels.
i have a box set of these books that were given to me as a child. i always wanted to like marmalade as a kid and made my mom buy it at the store all the time, but i just never like it. i do now. funny how tastebuds change.
This book was super cute and fun :) I love Paddington and the scrapes he gets himself into! I particularly liked the chapter about the game show; Paddington really out-does himself! Definitely a great book :)
Loved these as a child, & have bought them for my 5 year old niece for Christmas. She's an advanced reader for her age!

What can I say? I truly love Paddington.
He is so innocent and things just don't end up they way he plans them.

Another fun romp in the world of Paddington. Kids love it, especially when I do the character voices.
started it like friday i think :-?
i finished this on thursday
As with the others, very entertaining and witty stories.
Another charming tale of A bear from Peru.
