Book Review


While Paddington is in the garden making a list of all of the nice things about being a bear and living with the Browns, he realizes that one of the nicest things of all is the garden. Jonathan, Judy, and Paddington each have a piece of the garden to take care of, and Paddington discovers that gardening is much harder than it looks. He buys a book and then sits at a high spot so that he can see the garden area from a distance and his jar of marmalade gets covered by construction equipment. With some help from the construction workers, he gets his marmalade back and finds a unique way to make the garden just right for him.
