Original adventures of the classic bear from Darkest Peru, soon to be a major movie star! Paddington doesn't intentionally turn his friend's wedding into an uproar by getting the wedding ring stuck on his paw. Nor does he mean Mr Curry to slip on his marmalade sandwich in the middle of an important gold shot. But these sort of things just happen to a bear like Paddington! Paddington Bear has touched the hearts of adults and children worldwide with his earnest good intentions and humorous misadventures for more than fifty years.

US Kirkus Review »
Wherein Paddington ushes at a wedding, jams up a golf match, upsets a psychiatrist, effects an accidental cure, serves baked clastic.... A few of the escapades fall flat, and the head man/head man, head-shrinker/hat stretcher contretemps that sends Paddington to the psychiatrist may be over the heads of many kids - but the bear double-talking the doctor is side-splitting, and others are almost as funny. It's all a matter of how you rate Paddington, who's lost none of his guilelessness in the sketches although his powers of obfuscation are sometimes strained in the stories. (Kirkus Reviews)
