Paddington Bear had traveled all the way from Peru when the Brown family first met him in Paddington Station. Since then their lives have never been quite the same.... For ordinary things become quite extraordinary when a bear called Paddington is around.

This sumptuous treasury celebrates Paddington's enduring popularity by bringing together six of his most popular stories:

PaddingtonPaddington at the PalacePaddington at the ZooPaddington in the GardenPaddington and the Marmalade MazePaddington the Artist

Since Paddington Bear first arrived in London from Peru, he's captured the hearts of fans for generations. As a kid, I remember first meeting Paddington. Like the Brown family, I found myself loving this adventurous bear. Unfortunately mischief tends to fall Paddington as he learns to adjust to his new life in London, making his adventures that much more memorable. I think that's one of the things that fans have loved about Paddington. 

This treasury is a must have for fans of Paddington Bear! Now fans can relive Paddington's adventures over and over again with their own treasury featuring six classic stories of this beloved bear. Stories included are: 
  1. Paddington
  2. Paddington at the Palace
  3. Paddington at the Zoo
  4. Paddington in the Garden
  5. Paddington and the Marmalade Maze
  6. Paddington the Artist
This collection of stories is the perfect thing to pick up after you watch Paddington Bear the movie. You've not yet seen the family friendly, I highly recommend it. The Paddington Treasury is also the perfect thing to add to your bed story book collection. The illustrations are great addition to Paddington's stories. Now the only thing I need to add to this book, is a Paddington Bear of our own. 

Whether you've been a long standing fan of Paddington Bear, or are just getting familiar with him, I highly recommend picking up this great treasury of Paddington's adventures. 

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
