The irresistible Paddington Bear, who was found on Paddington station, returns in this reissued novel, with a brand new cover design.

Up until now, Paddington has managed to avoid school. But the Inspector himself catches up with him and packs him off. After one day, even the teacher wonders whether there is anything he can teach a certain bear from Darkest Peru.

And when it comes to dancing the rumba as always, Paddington takes the cake!

Stories of Paddington Bear have delighted children all over the world for more than fifty years.

Michael Bond was born in Newbury, Berkshire on 13 January 1926 and educated at Presentation College, Reading. He served in the Royal Air Force and the British Army before working as a cameraman for BBC TV for 19 years. In 1997 he was awarded the OBE for his services to children's literature.

From Our Editors

The Inspector finally tracks Paddington Bear down and orders him to attend school. But after only one day, the plan doesn’t turn out exactly as expected. Neither, sadly, does Paddington’s special birthday surprise: a day by the seaside seems perfect until Paddington ends up sailing -- through the air! This story and others are in the charming Paddington On Top.
