The stories of Paddington Bear have delighted children all around the world for over 50 years.
"Now, promise me you will write," Aunt Lucy said. "I promise to write as soon as I get the chance," said the bear.
Ever since Paddington arrived in England, he has shared his adventures with his aunt Lucy back in Peru. From meeting the Browns to discovering the sights and sounds of London, his letters tell the story of a kind-hearted bear discovering a whole new life - told with love, from Paddington.

I just loved this. Good old Paddington is such a dear and has such wonderful adventures. This particular story was different from the other two I've read, as this time the adventures are all related from the point of view of Paddington himself, in the form of letters to his Aunt Lucy. Many of the happenings he describes, such as the antique camera and the theater, but there were a few that were unfamiliar to me - the school game days, the barbershop, and the uncle's visit among them. Endearing and entertaining. And Broadbent's narration was superb. Hmm, and I now have a hankering for marmalade and cocoa and buns.
