About This Item

London: Collins, 1979. First edition of the eleventh book in the Paddington series. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Michael Bond on the half-title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket.

Synopsis

Again we find Paddington in excellent form—and, as usual, up to his ears in trouble. By accident he takes a driving test and is later presented with a certificate to drive something very special. Somehow his neighbor, Mr. Curry, is padlocked into Mr. Brown’s new steaming-hot sauna bath, while Paddington has difficulty remembering his combinations. Paddington Takes the Test is packed full of the bear’s well-meaning intentions, which go hilariously wrong.
