KIRKUS REVIEW

The bear in the shapeless hat and duffle coat pads on to the scene again (More About Paddington, 1962, p. 621, J-179, for one), and whether he's basking on his begonias, musing at a concert, or doubletalking on a quiz show, he's the same perry, vague bear who casually upsets and confuses the humans who hurry about him. Paddington is not steadily amusing--sometimes he's a bit heavy-footed--, but his animal antics (more often than not) will provoke smiles, and sometimes laughs.
