PreS-Gr 1—Paddington is back in this easy reader, this time visiting France. After a special greeting, he and the Browns are thrilled to learn that they have arrived in time for the town festival. Paddington has a wonderful time but learns that the band has a sick drum player. It's Paddington to the rescue! After practicing all day, he's ready to step in, but he can't see over the huge drum. Will he be able to keep up and follow along? Illustrated with pen and watercolor, this installment is a great adventure, has a nice sense of place, and ends with a BANG!
VERDICT Recommended for travelers and bear lovers.
