"A bear on Paddington Station?" said Mrs Brown in amazement. "Don't be silly - there can't be."The original story of Paddington, the classic bear from Darkest Peru.The Browns first meet Paddington on 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. Ordinary things - like having a bath, travelling underground or going to the seaside become quite extraordinary, if a bear called Paddington is involved.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A Little Ho-hum I grew up on the cartoon Paddington and decided that I would probably also love the book. This was not the case. Paddington's antics were really rather boring and dry. For me Winnie The Pooh remains THE stuffed bear.
