Paddington on Stage – plays for children – adapted by Michael Bond and Alfred Bradley


This is something of a rarity and, as far as we are aware, now only available second-hand.

Based around Michael Bond’s popular Paddington Bear books, this book of seven short play scripts is intended for young children to perform.

The scripts were based on the play The Adventures of Paddington Bear published by Samuel French.

The plays included are:

  • The arrival of Paddington

  • Paddington paints a picture

  • Paddington has a holiday

  • Paddington visits the dentist

  • Paddington goes to the launderette

  • Paddington goes to hospital

  • Paddington turns detective.

The book also contains costume notes and the lyrics (but not music) of two songs: I try so hard, and Paddington Bear.
