Paddington takes up gardening, but soon manages to stir up more than his share of adventure and drama in the Brown household: a paw-sticking toffee disaster; a slight scorching of Father Christmas's beard.

From a paw-sticking toffee disaster to a slight scorching of Father Christmas's beard, Paddington brings a splash of adventure to every day.
