‘ALL THIS COULD BE YOURS!’

Paddington read on the glossy leaflet showing a large, sleek, silver-grey car. It took him a long time to eat fifteen packets of currants in order to enter the competition. And the Rolls-Royce he’d expected to win turned out to be one of ten thousand consolation prizes – a bookmark!

Then Paddington finds himself taking a driving test and, much to his amazement, is presented with a license allowing him to drive a rather unusual vehicle.

Praise for the Paddington series:

‘I’ve always had great respect for Paddington…He is a British institution.’ Stephen Fry

‘Paddington has joined Pooh as one of the great bears of English children’s literature.’ The Teacher

‘Michael Bond’s accident-prone bear…has become one of the most enduring of children’s characters.’ The Bookseller
