Description

Paddington has warmed the hearts of generations of readers with his earnest good intentions and humorous misadventures. This new audiobook edition of the classic novel contains the original text by Michael Bond.

If Paddington Bear learned anything from his Uncle Pastuzo, it’s that home is where you hang your hat. And for Paddington, nothing feels quite like home than being with the Brown family. Whether Paddington is starring in a surprise concert performance while eating a marmalade sandwich or thwarting a burglary attempt from Gentleman Dan, the Drainpipe Man, this one-of-a-kind bear keeps the Brown family home full of adventure and laughter. 

First published in 2008, Paddington Here and Now is the twelfth classic novel about Michael Bond’s beloved classic character, Paddington Bear.


Author

Michael Bond:

Michael Bond began chronicling Paddington’s adventures in his first book, A Bear Called Paddington, published in 1958. Fortunately, bears don’t need much encouragement, and Paddington has since filled the pages of twelve further novels, a variety of picture books, and many other projects written for the young at heart.
