Paddington by Michael BondA gorgeous little hardback edition of the classic story of the bear from Peru. Paddington Bear first met the Brown family at a railway station - Paddington station, in fact. He had travelled all the way from Darkest Peru with only a jar of marmalade, a suitcase and a label reading 'Please look after this bear'. Without further ado, Mr and Mrs Brown promptly welcomed the adventurous bear into their family, and in honour of their meeting place they named him Paddington. The Browns soon discover that Paddington is a most unusual bear. Ordinary things - like having a bath - become quite extraordinary when a bear called Paddington is around. Now this classic story is available as a charming miniature picture book edition.
'Paddington has joined Pooh as one of the great bears of English children's literature.'
'Michael Bond's accident-prone bear...has become one of the most enduring of children's characters.'
