Paddington is a bear that gets separated from his explorer friend from Peru and finds himself in England. A nice family, named the Browns, take him home and let him stay with them.

The Browns come to help him and Paddington decides that he likes being with the Browns.
This is an overview of the new movie coming out and the pictures are screen shots from the movie—sometimes they are fuzzy and not easy to see. The colors are muted and dark. The story is simple and concise with one to two sentences per page. There are better books out there about Paddington.
