Ursus Nomine Paddington: A Bear Called Paddington

Written by Michael Bond

Illustrated by Peggy Fortnum

Ursus Nomine Paddington: A Bear Called Paddington Synopsis

A wonderful Latin edition of the classic story of Paddington, the bear from Darkest Peru, who was found lost on Paddington Station. The Browns first met Paddington on 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 his hat. The Browns soon found that Paddington was a very unusual bear. Ordinary things - like having a bath, travelling underground or going to the seaside became quite extraordinary, if a bear called Paddington was involved.
