Paddington Races Ahead

Paperback

The hilarious adventures of everyone’s favourite bear, Paddington, now a major movie star!

“My legs are a bit short for the pole vault!” repeated Paddington hotly. “But they’ve always been that way.”

Somehow Paddington always manages to find himself in unusual situations. So it is no surprise when he gets into a spot of bother with some shaving cream, causes a London bus to be evacuated, and is mistaken for a famous Peruvian hurdler by a film crew. There’s never a dull moment when a certain bear is around!

For more than sixty years, Paddington Bear has touched the hearts of adults and children worldwide with his earnest good intentions and humorous misadventures.
