For more than five decades, stories of Paddington Bear have delighted children all over the world.
The classic story of the bear from Darkest Peru who arrived at Paddington Station with nothing but a suitcase, a half-empty jar of marmalade and a label that read, `Please look after this bear. Thank you.' Mr and Mrs Brown discovered him, named him Paddington and welcomed him to their home, where he has lived ever since.
