The Browns are a bit uneasy when their grocer Harold Price asks Paddington to be an usher at his wedding to Deirdre Flint, even though it was one of Paddington's previous misadventures that brought them together in the first place. Then at the ceremony, no one can find the wedding ring, and a certain bear makes a beeline for the exit. In this eighth Paddington book, from 1968, he also causes pandemonium on a London bus, takes up golfing with Mr. Curry, and subsequently finds a cure for Mr. Curry's mysterious golf injury. Michael Bond's furry refugee in duffle coat and hat has charmed his way into the hearts of children in Britain and around the world—particularly in his original chapter books for readers and listeners up to 11 and fans of all ages.
