With "Paddington Marches On", I am now halfway through the twelve collections of short stories that Michael Bond published about the talking bear Paddington Brown.

Paddington continues to get in trouble, despite his best intentions. And, in each case, things work themselves out for the best. Mr. Bond has found a formula and it works. We keep reading because we like Paddington and we care about him and we want him to succeed, even though we know he always will.

As a bonus, I learned a bit about the sport of cricket!

And there is a nice surprise for Paddington and for the reader at the end of the last story!
