Stephen Fry is utterly delightful as Paddington the bear, who, most of the time, can't really see what all the fuss is about as he moves blithely from one grand misadventure to the next--helping to redecorate the house (with disastrous results), for example, or attempting to take a family portrait, or experiencing his first snow. Fry is as skilled with Paddington's frequently bewildered and bemused family, and the result is a gentle, clever, very, very funny audiobook that rewards careful listening with a thoroughly entertaining story. This is the perfect companion to the equally endearing A BEAR CALLED PADDINGTON, and fans are assured more duffle coats, more avoiding of baths, and more marmalade.
