The Voices

Please, I love Paddington but please change the voices back. Paddington sounds like an old man. And all the browns sound weird.

volume levels are a problem

Unfortunately, this is one of those books where the narrator's voice gets quiet, but then when switching characters gets loud. it makes it really difficult to listen to.

Same Paddington, different narrator.

Everyone sounded different which took my son a bit to get past, but it was the same mischevious bear that tumbles into trouble without meaning to. Still well worth the listen!
