Who but Paddington, that bumbling but lovable bear from Darkest Peru could find himself caught in the unsettling predicament of having to admit that he has accidentally dumped a tin of worms into the faculty stew on his first and, needless to say, last day at school?
In this revised edition of PADDINGTON ON TOP, our favorite bear finds himself caught up in seven fresh and lively adventures, each requiring more than Paddington’s usual hard stares and sticky-fingered determination. Whether proving his adeptness at water skiing, scoring the winning touchdown for a visiting Peruvian rugby team, or improving his physique, his beguiling innocence and dauntless enthusiasm have no match. Each hilarious escapade proves that here’s a bear who’s bound to come out on top.

Michael Bond purchased the original Paddington bear as a Christmas gift for his wife in 1956. A Bear Called Paddington was published two years later. At the time one reviewer said, “It should be compulsory reading for any child from six to sixty. Paddington is the funniest character in children’s books for many years.” Mr. Bond now lives in London.Review:
