Paddington Bear has been delighting adults and children alike with his earnest good intentions and humorous misadventures for over fifty years. To celebrate his enduring popularity, eleven classic novels (complete and unabridged) are brought together in one lavish slipcased volume, truly to be treasured.
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 things just seem to happen to Paddington. Wherever there is excitement to be found, a flooded bathroom, menacing dumplings, or a bear overboard, Paddington is never far from the scene...
This very special treasury brings together eleven of the original Paddington stories delicately illustrated by Peggy Fortnum, making an exquisite keepsake gift.
