Synopsis

Paddington at the Carnival by Michael Bond

A funny picture book about Paddington, the beloved, classic bear from darkest Peru - soon to be a major movie star! Paddington has never been to a carnival before, so Mr Gruber takes him down to the canal to join in the fun. Hoping to win a boat ride for two, the friends enter the Busy Bee Adventure Trail. Paddington soon discovers that he's very good at spotting things beginning with the letter B, but it seems that he's not the only one with his eye on the prize...

Reviews

Praise for the Paddington series: 'I've always had great respect for Paddington... He is a British institution.

'Paddington has joined Pooh as one of the great bears of English children's literature.'

'Michael Bond's accident-prone bear...has become one of the most enduring of children's characters.'

About the Author

Michael Bond

Michael Bond 13 Jan 1926 - 28 June 2017. Born in Newbury, Berkshire, England he was educated at Presentation College, Reading. During World War II Michael Bond served in both the Royal Air Force and the Middlesex Regiment of the British Army. He began writing in 1945 and sold his first short story to a magazine called London Opinion. This experience helped him decide that he wanted to be a writer.

After the first Paddington book was accepted, Michael Bond went on to write a whole series and by 1967 his books were so successful that that he was able to give up his job with the BBC in order to become a full-time writer.

In 2015, Michael was awarded a CBE for his services to children’s literature, to add to the OBE he received in 1997. Michael celebrated his 90th birthday in January 2016. He is married with two adult children and lives in London, not far from Paddington Station.
