KIRKUS REVIEW

Wherein Paddington ushes at a wedding, jams up a golf match, upsets a psychiatrist, effects an accidental cure, serves baked clastic.... A few of the escapades fall flat, and the head man/head man, head-shrinker/hat stretcher contretemps that sends Paddington to the psychiatrist may be over the heads of many kids--but the bear double-talking the doctor is side-splitting, and others are almost as funny. It's all a matter of how you rate Paddington, who's lost none of his guilelessness in the sketches although his powers of obfuscation are sometimes strained in the stories.
