Paddington Bear and the Busy Bee Carnival
Written by Michael Bond

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
