Hi, you must be Paddington’s mom!
Blog Guy, I have a question about classic children’s literature.
Sure. I once interviewed Maurice Sendak. He was great! He told me his favorite children’s book was…
Who cares what he said? My kids love Paddington, that cute bear from “darkest Peru,” with his iconic brush hat. They wanna know what happened to his family.
Each mother claims she wrote the famous note, “Please look after this bear,” but they get the wording wrong.
One says she wrote, “Please look after this bear and if he gets rich, text me.”
That’s harsh. What did the other mother write?
“Please hit this bear on the head with a ball-peen hammer.”
Ouch. That’s even worse!
It’s okay. With all his money Paddington got to be adopted by J.K. Rowling. He goes around now with his little suitcase filled with gold ingots and gourmet marmalade sandwiches. Not a bad life for a little bear.
