Paddington on Top

(3) 4-6 Illustrated by Peggy Fortnum. In these reissues, the amiable bear from "Darkest Peru" is as endearing as ever. The old-fashioned, episodic stories work well as family read-alouds; each chapter is a complete adventure. The humor is broad, and Fortnum's loose ink sketches place Paddington smack in the middle of every mess. Review covers these titles: Paddington on Top and Paddington Takes the Air.
