9780064436588: Paddington Bear and the Busy Bee Carnival

It's carnival time! Paddington Bear and his friend Mr. Gruber join the festivities by entering the Busy Bee Adventure Trail contest--whoever finds the greatest number of objects starting with the letter "B" wins a prize. They search all along the canals of Little Venice in London where Bicycles, Boats, and Balloons abound. Things couldn't be better. Then Mr. Gruber notices a sneaky-looking boy following them,. Could he be copying their list? Luckily, Paddington has a trick or two up his sleeve. After all, his B is the most important one of all--B for bear, that is.

Paddington Bear has charmed readers for nearly forty years. Now, another generation of fans can join the beloved bear from Darkest Peru on a variety of new adventures written by author Michael Bond. R. W. Alley's vibrant illustrations celebrate the classic tradition of Paddington with a fresh, new look.

About the Author:

Michael Bond began chronicling Paddington’s adventures in his first book, A Bear Called Paddington, published in 1958. Fortunately, bears don’t need much encouragement, and Paddington has since filled the pages of twelve further novels, a variety of picture books, and many other projects written for the young at heart.



R. W. Alley has illustrated a number of books featuring Paddington Bear. He lives in Barrington, Rhode Island, with his wife, author Zoë B. Alley.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2?Paddington is overwhelmed by the choices of activities at the Spring Carnival so his friend Mr. Gruber suggests the Busy Bee Adventure Trail, the object being to find as many things as possible that begin with the letter B. The bear gets right to business, but readers will see that trouble is already brewing. A young boy trailing the two is copying their list. Not surprisingly, when it's time to judge the contest there's a tie. The problem is solved when the bear finds another B, the most important one of all. Emerging readers and their parents will have the makings of a new game after they see the relish with which it's played here. Children will enjoy Bond's dry humor that will make them feel the wiser. Alley's watercolor-and-ink illustrations capture the soft colors of the spring day and the crowd's happy sense of anticipation, with deft touches that remind readers that this is not just any city, but Paddington's London.?Lisa S.
