“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 find that Paddington is a very unusual bear. Ordinary things — like having a bath, travelling underground or going to the seaside become quite extraordinary, if a bear called Paddington is involved.
