Paddington Goes to Hospital

“We should never have given Paddington a boomerang for his birthday,” said Mrs Brown as she gazed down at the figure lying on the lawn. “I knew no good would come of it.”

Paddington let out a groan …

Paddington has got himself into trouble again, and this time it’s serious. After trying to get his kite out of a tree, by rather unorthodox methods, he finds himself being whisked off to hospital in an ambulance. He is examined by doctors, is X-rayed and is eventually operated on!

Full of the humorous misunderstandings and adventures that this lovable bear is famous for, this is a great story for the young Paddington fan who is apprehensive, or merely curious, about what goes on inside a hospital.

AGE 4-7
