Paddington Goes To Town

By Michael Bond, Illustrated by Peggy Fortnum

The irresistible Paddington Bear, who was found on Paddington station, returns in this reissued novel, with an updated cover design.

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!

Stories of Paddington Bear have delighted children all over the world for fifty years.
