Product Description

‘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.

‘ALL THIS COULD BE YOURS!’

That’s what Paddington had 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 his driving test and, much to his amazement, is presented with a licence allowing him to drive a rather unusual vehicle.

Paddington turns up in many more hilarious books published by Collins.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! 22 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Paddington books were the first stories I can remember. Reading them again the memories came flooding back, they are just SO GOOD.
I particularly wanted the books with the original (and best), Peggy Fortnum illustrations, which are as good as I remember.

My only criticism, inflation has taken over and Paddington's sixpence is now ten pence!

I can't recommend these books highly enough to everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely stories 29 April 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
These are lovely stories that are full of gentle humour. Perfect for my 7 year old to read alone but also very enjoyable as 'family bedtime' stories with my 10 year old as well.

My ten year old daughter is working her way thru the Paddington collection of novels like this, and loves them. Her interest keeps her hooked, and the quality of the writing can only help her reading age. Thankyou Mr. Bond!
