Paddington: The Story of the Movie by Jeanne WillisYes, I know Im hardly the target demographic, but...Paddington, like William Brown, Jennings and a whole horde of Blytons is an integral part of my childhood, and thankfully, the recent film based on Michael Bonds little Peruvian marmalade guzzler did not disappoint. This, the novelisation of the film is not by Bond, but is a faithful retelling (and based very closely on the screenplay) of the actual film. Naturally it is not short on sweetness, sentiment and jokes and Paddington remains what he always has been, an innocent, child-like creature filled with natural wisdom and charm. Watching the film last week made me fall in love with him in exactly the way I did when I was seven years old, and the purchase of the book has added to my somewhat battered collection of Paddington paperbacks. Great stuff.
