Paddington Helps Out - Michael Bond,Peggy Fortnum

For more review, check out my blog Craft-Cycle

 

A very nice continuation of the Paddington stories. I love that this collection is themed as Paddington tries to help the Brown family and all the mayhem that ensues from building a magazine rack to going to do laundry. Humorous stories that will make the reader fall in love with Paddington all over again.

 

The stories in this collection are just a fun and entertaining as the first two books in the series. I greatly enjoyed it.

A Bear Called Paddington - Michael Bond,Peggy Fortnum

I just recently watched the newest film adaptation of Paddington's story, so I figured it was time to re-read the book as well.

A fun account of Paddington's misadventures. This is a hilarious book that is also heart warming. Each chapter describes a different adventure from going shopping to doing magic tricks. This format makes for good bedtime stories. Very silly and humorous. I really enjoyed the stories.

A Bear Called Paddington
A Bear Called Paddington - Michael Bond,Peggy Fortnum

I picked this one up because Paddington was the answer to one of our trivia night questions. I missed this one and realized I didn't know anything about Paddington beyond darkest Peru, marmalade sandwiches and the train station.

 

It's a marshmallow book (sweet and light). Each chapter reads almost like a short story. Paddington has some interesting adventures, but I wasn't interested enough to seek out any more of his books.

The Tales of Olga Da Polga by Bond Michael (2012-08-02) Paperback - Bond Michael

Well, this sounded much better than it actually was.

It was mostly the fault of Olga herself. The story was decent, the idea was fun, but Olga was just a terrible character. Starting rumours, making up tall tales (which I truly didn't like and I was dreading them when they popped up), thinking she is so much more superior to anyone (and bragging about it), and much much more. I was so terribly glad for the humans that they didn't have to hear Olga's stories, but I felt sorry for the animals.
Luckily, very luckily, Olga often got some backlash (in one way or another) for what she said or did.
Sure, she was also interesting to read about, to see her live her life, to see her talk about the changing of seasons, to see her views on her home, to see her make friends with even the unlikeliest animals (cats).

I also had a laugh that she would call the humans, Sawdust (Mr. or Ms. or Mrs.).

Also why the hell would those people bind/wrap Holly, HOLLY around Olga's hutch? She could try to eat it and let me just tell you this is a bad idea. :| There are just some things you shouldn't put near your guinea pig.

There are also illustrations, and I have to say those were the best part of the book. Olga looks absolutely adorable, and I just love how detailed the art is.

So yeah, I was really looking forward to this one, because I love guinea pigs (and other rodents as well) and I just love it when books are about them. Sadly, this one was not meant to be.
