What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Paddington first charmed American audiences forty years ago. Now a new generation will surely be won over by Paddington’s particular brand of preposterous humor and gentle satire. The Browns first meet Paddington on a railway platform in London. He is sitting on a battered suitcase, wearing an odd-looking hat and a sign around his neck that reads, “Please look after this bear. Thank you.” And that is just what they do, unaware that home will never be the same once Paddington becomes a member of the family.

Michael Bond

<p><strong>Michael Bond</strong> began chronicling Paddington’s adventures in his first book, <em>A Bear Called Paddington, </em>published in 1958.
