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.
My wonderful little keeps being wonderful in his intent that usually goes arry but always turns into an unexpected result that is better than what was intended.

Paddington carries on eating elevensies and getting into trouble.
