A SPECIAL EDITION OF THE FIRST TWO PADDINGTON BOOKS
A BEAR CALLED PADDINGTON
The Browns first meet Paddington Bear at 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.
MORE ABOUT PADDINGTON
When Paddington attempts home decorating, detective work and photography, the Browns start to realise that Paddington causes his own particular brand of chaos.
