Paddington Takes to TV Author:Michael Bond, Ivor Wood (Illustrator) In each chapter of the new adventures of Paddington, the lovable bumbling bear is somehow the center of attention on a television show. It all begins when Paddington is the winner of a baking contest on his favorite TV show. But the luck runs out when his cake rises so much that it cannot be removed from the oven.

As always, Paddington -- with a hard stare and a hot retort -- emerges from each disaster none the worse for wear.
