As a large family of eight going to the movies is not something we often do. To warrant a big expense like a trip to the cinema a movie would have to be REALLY good, so if I tell you that I took the oldest four to see our favourite little bear on the big screen you can be sure this movie is an absolute winner. We first fell in love with Paddington when reading the books, totally adored him in the first Paddington movie and we couldn’t wait to see what he got up to in Paddington 2:
After making the movie across the oceans to London and finding a new home with the Brown family, Paddington has well and truly settled into his new life. He still misses his Aunty Lucy and with her 100th birthday coming up Paddington sets off on a mission to find her the perfect gift.
He finds it in Mr. Gruber’s antique shop: A unique and very rare pop-up book that celebrates London’s most special spots. Unfortunately it is pricey so he decides to join the workforce and hopefully earn enough money to buy the book in time for the big event. Just as he is about to earn the final pounds the gift of his dreams is stolen, buy by who and why? The adventurous bear is not about to let go of the book that easily and is determined to get the books safely back in his hairy little paws.
There is no doubt about it, after watching Paddington 2 you will be licking your lips at the thought of a delicious slice of toast smothered in marmalade. Especially for hungry bears of all ages celebrity chef and dessert queen Anna Polyviou has created this scrumptious recipe for Paddington’s Pineapple Marmalade for you to try at home. Enjoy!
