The circus is in town and Paddington is very excited. The Browns get tickets for the front row so Paddington can see all the action. He gets a shock when it looks like a clown on stilts is going to give him a soaking, but not as much of a shock as the audience gets when Paddington tries his hand at the trapeze.

The circus has come to town! Paddington Bear and the Browns have front-row seats, and they can't wait to see the show. Inside the circus tent there's a ringmaster with a top hat; a very, very tall clown; a band . . . and a funny-looking man hanging from a rope above Paddington's head. Always willing to lend a paw, Paddington rushes off to save the trapeze artist. The circus is turned upside down, but the show must go on—and it does, thanks to a surprise performance by Paddington.
Paddington Bear has charmed readers for more than fifty years. Now another generation of fans can join the beloved bear from Peru on a variety of adventures written by Michael Bond and illustrated by artist R. W. Alley.About the Author:
Michael Bond began chronicling Paddington’s adventures in his first book, A Bear Called Paddington, published in 1958. Fortunately, bears don’t need much encouragement, and Paddington has since filled the pages of twelve further novels, a variety of picture books, and many other projects written for the young at heart. Paddington’s creator is still writing and lives in London, England, not far from Paddington Station, where it all began.
R. W. Alley has illustrated a number of books featuring Paddington Bear. He lives in Barrington, Rhode Island, with his wife, author Zoë B. Alley.
