The Lovereading4Kids comment
Everyone’s favourite Bear joins in summer sporting fever! There are races for everything – even knitting - at the local sports club. Paddington and the Brown family are sure they will win something! Paddington tries hard but can he secure a gold medal?
Lovely family fun.
Paddington Goes for Gold by Michael Bond
A hilarious picture book featuring Paddington, the classic bear from Darkest Peru, as he takes part in a local family sports event, with rather sticky results!
Paddington is in high competitive spirits when he accompanies the Brown family to a local sports day. But whether he's putting the shot, helping Jonathan and Judy get ready for the three-legged race, or taking part in a relay, nothing goes quite as planned. Will a gold medal ever be within Paddington's reach?
Praise for the Paddington series:

'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
