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? 
This bestseller from the Sunday Times bestselling author, Michael Bond, is a delightful journey into the world of Paddington, a bear who loves recreation and sports. His adventures are a testament to the spirit of taking part, even when the track seems challenging. 
For fans of Axel Scheffler (Mother Goose's Nursery Rhymes), Dick King-Smith (Martin's Mice), Beatrix Potter (Beatrix Potter The Complete Tales), James Mayhew (Ella Bella Ballerina and the Magic Toyshop), and Jim Field (The Christmas Pig).
