A funny picture book about Paddington, the beloved, classic bear from darkest Peru -- soon to be a major movie star!

For Paddington, one of the nicest things about being a bear and living with the Brown family is being able to share their lovely garden. But gardens don't just happen, and the one at number thirty-two Windsor Gardens keeps the whole family busy, so Paddington is only too pleased to lend a paw when they give him a chance. He may not have "green fingers", but the fact that paws and marmalade are never far apart leads to some unexpectedly colourful results during National Garden Week!

This book has gorgeous pictures. The story is very simple but carries a message for both young and old! Toddlers will love the illustrations of Paddington and his friends and older children will begin to understand the message behind the story. As a Grandma I found this book totally delightful!
