'Oh dear,' said Paddington, as everyone turned to look at him accusingly. 'I’m in trouble again.' Somehow trouble comes naturally to Paddington. What other bear could upset the whole cinema by standing on his seat to boo the ‘bad guy’ in the cowboy film? Or drip ice-cream on the people down below? Or flood the launderette and saw Mr Curry’s kitchen into little pieces? Only Paddington! But when Paddington’s head is so full of ideas, some things are bound to go wrong!
I realised I have quite a few Paddington books on my digital bookshelf to be read so dived into the next adventure with everyone’s favourite London-based bear. This time, our bear is put in charge of the household due to absence and sickness, which results in adventures around the laundrette, trying to cook a meal and doing a bit of DIY. Sawing through the table didn’t ring any bells for me at all, honest.
