Synopsis

Paddington and the Grand Tour by Michael Bond

The classic bear from Darkest Peru, who was found on Paddington Station, returns for a day of London sightseeing in this hilarious picture book! With his suitcase packed full of marmalade sandwiches and Mrs Bird's umbrella (in case it rains), Paddington sets out for a day of sightseeing with his friend, Mr Gruber. How can he know that the tourists will think he's their tour guide? And how is he to guess that they will follow him everywhere?

Reviews

Praise for the Paddington series:

'I've always had great respect for Paddington... He is a British institution.
