“A bear on Paddington Station?” said Mrs Brown in amazement. “Don’t be silly, Henry. There can’t be.”

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 ordinary things become quite extraordinary when a bear called Paddington is involved.
