Paddington #4: Paddington Abroad

Children's Book and Media Review, Oct 2016

When Mr. Brown announces that the family will be going to France for their summer holiday, Paddington is excited to take his first real holiday, especially when he is put in charge of the itinerary. He decides that going on holiday is a special occasion so he takes money out of the bank, gets stuck talking to customs over some confusion about a passport, makes a meal of escargot for the family, visits a fortune teller, goes fishing, and joins the Tour de France before returning home to London.

He decides that going on holiday is a special occasion so he takes money out of the bank, gets stuck talking to customs over some confusion about a passport, makes a meal of escargot for the family, visits a fortune teller, goes fishing, and joins the Tour de France before returning home to London. This book has a more coherent theme than the other books because the whole book describes Paddington’s adventures getting ready to go to France and then his time there, but each chapter still tells an individual story about things Paddington is doing. No matter where he goes, however, Paddington will always end up in some sort of trouble. Readers will enjoy Paddington’s adventures in a new place and enjoying the holiday with his family.
