Since Mr and Mrs Brown first found Paddington at Paddington Station, he has undeniably become one of the world’s most famous bears. First published in 1958, ‘A Bear Called Paddington’ is a classic of British literature and loved by fans worldwide. More than fifty years ago, a small bear from Darkest Peru stowed away on a ship headed for England. Sent by his Aunt Lucy (one of his only known relatives, aside from an Uncle Pastuzo who gave Paddington his hat), who has gone to live in the Home for Retired Bears in Lima. He arrived at Paddington Station with nothing but a suitcase, a half empty jar of marmalade, and a label around his neck that read ‘Please look after this bear’. He was discovered by Mr and Mrs Brown, who were just the sort of people to welcome a lost bear into their family. They promptly named him Paddington and took him home. The classic stories of Paddington Bear continue to charm readers worldwide with his earnest good intentions and humorous misadventures.
