From Our Editors

Oh, dear! Paddington Bear hasn’t managed to make a very good impression on Mr. Cheeseman, who made it plain he wishes he’d never heard of St. Christopher’s School -- and Paddington in particular! Then poor Paddington gets into more trouble when he helpfully tries to tailors Mr. Curry’s trousers. Revisit England’s favourite bear in Paddington Takes the Air, with these adventures and more.
