About Paddington at Large
There’ll always be an England, but the old place has never been quite the same since the Brown children came across a small lost bear in London’s Paddington Station. Whether tinkering with the neighbour’s lawn mower or experimenting in the kitchen, the little bear has a knack for finding trouble.In this new edition of Paddington at Large, the well-meaning bear with a talent for trouble continues to fill the lives of the Brown family with unexpected adventures that will delight the multitude of its fans.
“Even Paddington can’t come to much harm in half an hour,” said Mrs Brown optimistically. But he can manage a lot of other things in even less time – like hanging Mr Curry’s lawnmower from a tree-top, or coming up through the bandstand floor during the ‘Surprise Symphony’.
Then Paddington has a sticky time of it making toffee in Mrs Bird’s kitchen, and an even stickier time explaining what went wrong.
And who else but Paddington could set Father Christmas’s beard on fire?
For nearly sixty years, this little bear has touched the hearts of adults and children worldwide with his earnest good intentions and humorous misadventures.
