If you've read Paddington, these books will really surprise you. Michael Bond, the author of the wildly successful Paddington series write a series that's definitely for grown-ups, although it still has some of the same kind of physical comedy that's so funny in Paddington. M. Pamplemousse (grapefruit) takes his dog Pommes Frites (french fries) to French restaurants to critique the food. But somehow, wherever he goes, there's a mystery to be solved. For me, finding these books was as pleasurable as finding the essays, satires, and plays of A. A. Milne. I wouldn't say that Bond is on the level of Milne as a writer, but I did enjoy these stories.
