Adopting for their own the lost bear they find in Paddington Station, the Browns have some exciting first moments with him.

HARPERCOLL

Nearly fifty years ago, a small bear from Darkest Peru set out on an adventure of a lifetime. With nothing but a suitcase, several jars of marmalade, and a label around his neck that read, "Please Look After This Bear," he stowed away on a ship headed for faraway England. When the little bear arrived at London's busy Paddington Station, he was discovered by Mr. and Mrs. Brown. As luck would have it, the Browns were just the sort of people to welcome a lost bear into their family.

Paddington Bear has charmed readers worldwide with his earnest good intentions and humorous misadventures. This reissue of the classic story, with new artwork by original artist R. W. Alley, will surely let a whole new generation of children find a home in their hearts for this lovable lost bear.

This is the original Paddington story where he arrives from darkest Peru. He arrives at Paddington station very confused and a kind family takes him in. He makes a mess and takes a bath, we learn that his favourite food is marmelade. Cute story, the kids enjoyed it because they remembered seeing the movie....

Paddington has to leave darkest Peru where he lived with his Aunt, until she entered an old folks home. He somehow makes his way to England, more specifically Paddington station in London. He arrives at the station some what confused. To his luck a family doesnt want him to be left alone and takes him in. He makes a mess while eating at the station and has to have a bath upon his arrival, which is a complete disaster. After the bath he falls asleep.
