Book Overview


Enjoy six hilarious picture books, all about Paddington – the nation’s favourite bear, now a major movie star – in this special gift edition suitcase with carry-along handle.

Paddington Bear is a distinguished small bear of earnest good intentions who gets drawn into mishap and adventure at every turn. Thankfully his great sense of logic and determination manage to get him out of most scrapes, albeit in perhaps some rather unconventional ways.

Find out what happens when Paddington gets all the wrong kind of attention at the zoo, how he finds his way out of a maze, and how he ‘helps out’ around the house…with messy results!

The Paddington books contained in the suitcase are:
Paddington and the Marmalade Maze
Paddington and the Tutti Frutti Rainbow
Paddington at the Palace
Paddington at the Zoo
Paddington Minds the House
Paddington the Artist
