A Bear Called Paddington

Michael Bond, Peggy Fortnum

The original story of Paddington Bear. The Browns first meet Paddington on a railway station – Paddington station, in fact. He has traveled 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.
