A Bear Called Paddington
NEW BOOK AND CD PACK.
“A bear on Paddington Station?” said Mrs Brown in amazement. “Don’t be silly – there can’t be.”
The original story of Paddington, the classic bear from Darkest Peru, read by Stephen Fry.
The Browns first meet Paddington on a railway station – Paddington station, in fact. He has travelled 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.
