about this item
Christmas is coming, and Paddington has saved just enough money to take the Brown family to Barkridges store to visit Santa's Winter Wonderland. But trouble has a way of finding the lovable bear, so when Paddington decides to lend a helping hand, the whole store is suddenly in chaos. Luckily Mrs. Bird knows just what to do and—with a little help from Santa Claus himself—might even make Paddington's special Christmas wish come true!
Since 1958 Michael Bond's beloved character, Paddington Bear, has charmed readers around the world with his earnest good intentions and humorous misadventures. This newly repackaged edition of the classic picture book, with illustrations by R. W. Alley, is the perfect introduction to Paddington Bear for young readers.
The stories of Paddington Bear have delighted children all around the world for over 50 years.
"Oh dear," said Paddington, as everyone turned to look at him accusingly. "I'm in trouble again." Somehow trouble came naturally to Paddington.
What other bear could upset a whole movie theater by standing on his seat to boo the bad guy in the film? Or drip ice cream on the people down below? Or flood the Laundromat and saw Mr. Curry's kitchen into little pieces? Only Paddington! But when Paddington's head is so full of ideas, some things are bound to go wrong!
