The classic story of Paddington, the bear from Darkest Peru, who was found lost on Paddington Station.

"A bear on Paddington Station?" said Mrs Brown in amazement. "Don't be silly - there can't be."

The Browns first met Paddington on 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 his hat.

The Browns soon found that Paddington was a very unusual bear. Ordinary things - like having a bath, travelling underground or going to the seaside became quite extraordinary, if a bear called Paddington was involved.

Our customer reviews

As I write this I am listening to my two boys, aged 5 and 4, laughing uncontrollably as they lie in bed listening to Paddington. They've been listening intently for the last hour now, and they're usually up and down to the toilet, in and out of bed types. Stephen Fry delivers an expressive and engaging reading of these classic stories. I cannot recommend them highly enough, and the audio book format offers wonderful flexibility - a great alternative to music in the car, or a bedtime story. To be honest, I'm a little jealous of my boys right now, as I can hear snatches of the story and just want to close my eyes and drift into Paddington's world.show more
