The Classic Adventures of Paddington Synopsis

Paddington Bear has been delighting adults and children alike with his earnest good intentions and humorous misadventures for over fifty years. This beautiful slipcase edition features 11 complete and unabridged Paddington Bear stories of the bear who was found by Brown family on Paddington station. Since then their lives have never been quite the same...for things just seem to happen to Paddington. Wherever there is excitement to be found, a flooded bathroom, menacing dumplings, or a bear overboard, Paddington is never far from the scene...

Paddington will come to our cinema screens in time for Christmas 2014.  David Heyman, best known for his work with Harry Potter, will produce  this major new release which sees Nicole Kidman join a stellar British cast including Hugh Bonneville, Peter Capaldi and Sally Hawkins.  See the trailer on www.paddington.com
