What to expect

A brand new picture book starring Paddington, the classic bear from Darkest Peru, as he takes part in a local family sports event, with hilarious results!

When Paddington attends a local family sports event with the Brown family, he can’t wait to try his paw at as many activities as possible. But, as always, when Paddington is around, things do not quite go according to plan… with outrageously sticky results.

And as Paddington soon finds out, it’s not winning that counts, it’s the taking part…

Will Paddington go home with any prizes?
