Summary

The irresistible Paddington Bear, who was found in Paddington station, returns in this reissued novel, with a brand-new cover design.

Paddington has a knack for 'smelling out things', and his sharp nose, supported by marmalade sandwiches, leads him into many adventures. Whether it's lending a paw to a famous Russian ballet dancer or serving baked elastic instead of baked Alaska, this unforgettable bear is as trouble-prone and funny as ever!

Stories of Paddington Bear have delighted children all over the world for 50 years.

Most enjoyable!

Complaint(s): The summary describes one scene from ‘Paddington goes to Town’ instead of one from ‘At Work’, but apart from that, everything is just as good as ever!

Paddington at work

Paddington at work is a very good book I would recommend it. Paddington is really funny all the way to the end of it. Really good book I would defiantly recommend this book to 7-13 year-olds.
