Book Description

April 19 2001 Collins Modern Classics
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.

Product Description


"Paddington has joined Pooh as one of the great bears of English children's literature" The Teacher

From the Publisher

Mr. and Mrs. Brown first met Paddington--a most endearing bear from Darkest Peru--on a railway platform in London. A sign hanging around his neck said, "Please look after this bear. Thank you" So that is just what they did.

From the very first night when he attempted his first bath and ended up nearly flooding the house, Paddington was seldom far from imminent disaster. Jonathan and Judy were delighted with this havoc and even Mr. and Mrs. Brown had to admit that life seemed to be more filled with adventure when there was a bear in the house. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paddington... Feb. 9 2000
He is so clumsy, that anyone will laugh. I read all of the Paddington books I could find as a kid, and I read them again as I got older. And I would read them again, and again and again. This is a very good reason to have kids, so you can buy this book. Too bad he has become some sort of commercial bear, he is much greater as a little clumsy bear trying to please all the people.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Bear Called Paddington Dec 20 1999
By A Customer
Classic story of Paddington the Bear who comes to live with the Brown family in London. Most children know the stuffed animal but haven't heard the escapades. This issus is a welcome addition to children's libraries. Very good, humorous, fun animals, with good black and white illustrations. Recommended for K through the 4th grade students.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Bear Called Pattington- The Best Book!! March 18 1999
By A Customer
A Bear Called Paddington is a great book about a bear about the size of a teddy bear. He is funny and takes every thing so seriously. He gets into some pretty funny messes. I recromend this book to people of all ages who love humerous and exciting books.

A lot of North American children have no idea who Paddington Bear is. It's a shame because the books are wonderful. Bought this to give as a birthday present and found myself reading it!
