This is the original Paddington story where he arrives from darkest Peru. He arrives at Paddington station very confused and a kind family takes him in. He makes a mess and takes a bath, we learn that his favourite food is marmelade. Cute story, the kids enjoyed it because they remembered seeing the movie....

Paddington has to leave darkest Peru where he lived with his Aunt, until she entered an old folks home. He somehow makes his way to England, more specifically Paddington station in London. He arrives at the station some what confused. To his luck a family doesnt want him to be left alone and takes him in. He makes a mess while eating at the station and has to have a bath upon his arrival, which is a complete disaster. After the bath he falls asleep.
