I like the Paddington Bear books by Michael Bond because Paddington is always getting mixed up! He is very funny.

Synopsis

“A bear on Paddington Station?” said Mrs Brown in amazement. “Don’t be silly – there can’t be.”

The Browns first met Paddington on a railway station – Paddington station, in fact. He had travelled all the way from Darkest Peru with only a jar of marmalade, a suitcase and his hat.

The Browns soon find that Paddington is a very unusual bear. Ordinary things – like having a bath, travelling underground or going to the seaside become quite extraordinary, if a bear called Paddington is involved.

Michael Bond purchased the original Paddington bear as a Christmas gift for his wife in 1956. A Bear Called Paddington was published two years later. At the time one reviewer said, "It should be compulsory reading for any child from six to sixty. Paddington is the funniest character in children's books for many years." Mr. Bond now lives in London.
