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 haven't read the print version.
Stephen Fry reads this beautifully and it is so funny. My 4 year old is entranced.
I like Doctor Who.
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.
Avid Listener of books at 1-1/2 times the normal speed. Trying to make up for all those boring high school teachers that could not reach me.
Very fun story that your kids would love to share with you. Turn off the TV and spend some time with the kiddies and a wonderful story for the ages.
Johnnie: I liked all of it. I thought it was funny when Paddington yelled "Help, Help" and thought he was going to drown in the bath.
Mom: Fun to listen to, Johnnie was disappointed when the story ended. Stephen Fry was a delightful narrator.
