A Bear Called Paddington
The classic story of Paddington, the bear from Darkest Peru, who was found lost on Paddington Station.
“A bear on Paddington Station?” said Mrs Brown in amazement. “Don’t be silly – there can’t be.”
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.
