"More About Paddington" is Michael Bond's second collection of stories about Paddington the Bear. As in the first collection, each story relates an incident or adventure in the life of the good-hearted anthropomorphic bear and the English family that has taken him in.
Each story follows a similar pattern: Paddington has an idea and sets out with the best of intentions; things go wrong and sometimes things get messy; everything works out well in the end. They are cute stories aimed at children, but they entertain enough to appeal to adults.
The stories in this collection are more cohesive than in the previous book. Each tale references the one before and they all take place over a period of a few months at the end of the year.
Paddington is quickly becoming one of my favourite characters in children's literature.
