Paddington: A Classic Collection Synopsis

Paddington Bear has been delighting adults and children alike with his earnest good intentions and humorous misadventures for nearly sixty years. To celebrate his enduring popularity, ten classic paperback novels are brought together in this special slipcase edition. Paddington is now a major movie star! Paddington Bear had travelled all the way from Darkest Peru when the Brown family first met him on Paddington station. Since then their lives have never been quite the same... for things just seem to happen to Paddington. Wherever there is excitement to be found, a flooded bathroom, menacing dumplings, or a bear overboard, Paddington is never far from the scene... Slipcase contains: * A Bear Called Paddington * Paddington Abroad * Paddington Goes to Town * More About Paddington * Paddington Helps Out * Paddington Takes the Air * Paddington at Large * Paddington on Top * Paddington Marches On * Paddington at Work
