After a deadly earthquake destroys his home in Deepest Darkest Peru, a young bear makes his way to England in search of a new home. He soon gets a new name “Paddington” and finds shelter with the Brown family, careful Mr Brown, artistic Mrs Brown, science-mad Peter and language whiz Judie – oh and the weird and wonderful Mrs Bird!

And whilst he struggles to fit into life in London and searches for the mysterious “Explorer”, he’s also caught the eye of villainous taxidermist, Millicent Clyde, who’ll stop at nothing to add him to her collection.
