Stephen Fry's variety of voices and accents very much enrich the adventures of Paddington in the odd new world of London. I love that I'm able to introduce this classic to the kids with his voice.

Yes, but we've been saving it for car rides with the kids.
My daughter liked all the trouble Paddington gets into.
My daughter loved the part where there was trouble on the escalator.
I loved this series as a kid and this is one of those fab cases where a narrator elevates the experience of a book to another level. As charming as could possibly be!
I hadn't read this book in years and experiencing it once more through Stephen Fry's excellent narration was a complete joy.
Married. Mother. Student. Full-time job. 33 years old. Doctor Who fanatic. Not necessarily in that order.
When I was in third grade, my teacher, Mr. Merrick, read Paddington to the class and I remember laughing out loud to his exploits. Now that I have a child of my own, I wanted him to have those same experiences. At first, my son wasn't particularly interested, but after about three chapters, I noticed he was becoming completely immersed in the story. He laughed out loud at the end of each chapter and when the book was finished, he begged for more. I downloaded the second book today and I'm looking forward to hearing him laugh at Paddington once more.
Retired and enjoying volunteering and keeping up with national news. Aslo am learning about therapy dogs and hoping to train my dog to do the Read to a Dog program in libraries. That is, if I can get him to learn to behave!
Good book for reluctant readers. The flow of language is very British so oral reading to get the feel of the dialogue will he
