This new revised edition of the second book about Paddington captures all the playfulness of the incorrigible little bear. Living with the Brown family in London, Paddington has a talent for getting into trouble. His intentions are always the best, but he is seldom far from disaster. While his independent spirit and curious nature often get him into sticky situations, Paddington is always loved for the cheer he brings, and his stories have been a source of delight for young readers ever since he first appeared on the scene.

The stories of Paddington Bear have delighted children all around the world for over 50 years.
"Bears like Paddington are very rare," said Mrs. Bird, "and a good thing, too, or it would cost us a small fortune in marmalade."
It's a good thing for lots of reasons that bears like Paddington are rare. Whether it is his attempts at home decorating, detective work, or photography, this bear causes his own special brand of chaos.About the Author:
Michael Bond purchased the original Paddington bear as a Christmas gift for his wife in 1956. A Bear Called Paddington was published two years later. At the time one reviewer said, "It should be compulsory reading for any child from six to sixty. Paddington is the funniest character in children's books for many years." Mr. Bond now lives in London.
