A Bear Called Paddington
“A bear on Paddington Station?” said Mrs Brown in amazement. “Don’t be silly – there can’t be.”
The Browns first met Paddington at a railway station – Paddington Station, in fact. He had travelled all the way from Darkest Peru with only a jar of marmalade, a battered suitcase and his hat. And when the Browns saw the note attached to him – “Please look after this bear” – they knew they had to take him home and do just that! The Browns soon find that Paddington is a very unusual bear. Ordinary things like having a bath, travelling on the Tube or going to the seaside become quite extraordinary – when a bear called Paddington is involved!
