“We should never have given Paddington a boomerang for his birthday,” said Mrs Brown as she gazed down at the figure lying on the lawn. “I knew no good would come of it.” Paddington let out a groan …
Paddington has got himself into trouble again, and this time it’s serious. After trying to get his kite out of a tree by rather unorthodox methods, he finds himself being whisked off to hospital in an ambulance. He is examined by doctors, is X-rayed and is eventually operated on!
Full of the humorous misunderstandings and adventures that this lovable bear is famous for, this is a great story for the young Paddington fan who is apprehensive, or merely curious, about what goes on inside a hospital.

‘Michael Bond’s accident-prone bear…has become one of the most enduring of children’s characters.’ The BooksellerFrom the Back Cover:
When the Browns find Paddington lying on the lawn, unable to remember where he is or even what the word 'bun' stands for, they immediately realise something is seriously wrong and send for an ambulance.
For a while even the doctors are baffled, but gradually all is revealed. One thing is certain, the staff have never had to deal with a patient quite like Paddington before, but then it is his first time in hospital. Both sides agree that they have learned a lot from the experience!
