Unabridged and illustrated in glorious full-colour throughout, this exquisite slipcased gift edition of the original story of Paddington, the classic bear from Darkest Peru, is truly to be treasured! “A bear? On Paddington station?” Mrs Brown looked at her husband in amazement. “Don’t be silly, Henry. There can’t be!” Paddington Bear had travelled all the way from Darkest Peru when the Brown family first met him on Paddington station. Since then their lives have never been quite the same… for ordinary things become quite extraordinary when a bear called Paddington is involved.
