9780007277070: Paddington: The Original Story of the Bear from Peru

A gorgeous little hardback edition of the classic story of the bear from Peru. Paddington Bear first met the Brown family at a railway station - Paddington station, in fact. He had travelled all the way from Darkest Peru with only a jar of marmalade, a suitcase and a label reading 'Please look after this bear'. Without further ado, Mr and Mrs Brown promptly welcomed the adventurous bear into their family, and in honour of their meeting place they named him Paddington. The Browns soon discover that Paddington is a most unusual bear. Ordinary things - like having a bath - become quite extraordinary when a bear called Paddington is around. Now this classic story is available as a charming miniature picture book edition.

From the Back Cover:

When Mr. Gruber teaches Paddington about hidden paintings, Paddington can’t wait to unearth a new discovery. But what begins as an artistic experiment turns into a surprise for the whole family!

This Level One I Can Read will have beginning readers charmed by Paddington’s creative spirit.
