Paddington’s Finest Hour

Paddington – the beloved classic bear from Darkest Peru, now a major movie star – is back in this fantastically funny, illustrated novel from master storyteller Michael Bond!

Hurrying forward, he held out a welcoming hand. “Sir Percival Rushmoor,” he said. “I’m invigilating.”“I’m sorry to hear that, Sir Percival,” said Paddington. “I hope you feel better very soon.”

Paddington always finds himself in unusual situations so it is no surprise when he has a run-in with the police, appears in a TV cookery show, and gives one of his hard stares to a hypnotist!

For nearly sixty years, Paddington Bear has touched the hearts of adults and children worldwide with his earnest good intentions and humorous misadventures.
