Book Overview


Little ones will love this simple story about Paddington helping around the house, with an easy-assemble 9-piece jigsaw on every spread.

One day, a small bear from Darkest Peru arrived at Paddington Station with a suitcase, a jar of marmalade and a label around his neck that read ‘Please look after this bear’…

Over fifty years ago, Paddington first came to London and since then has become synonymous with the city; beloved by locals and tourists alike for his earnest good intentions and amusing adventures.

Now the youngest children can enjoy a day in the life of Paddington in a simplified story with gorgeously nostalgic Film Fair classic animation images and a press-out and play jigsaw to complete on every spread.
