Synopsis

Paddington Takes the Test by Michael Bond

`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.
