The Browns are going abroad, and Paddington considers a holiday in France is not to be taken lightly, So he packs a disguise outfit, his magic set and a map of France printed on a tea towel. Paddington is in charge of the 'EYETINNERY' and, as Mrs Bird mutters darkly, 'There’s no knowing where we might end up.' But he’s planning some very good holiday ‘doings’ indeed for the Browns. And Paddington himself becomes the only bear ever to ride in the famous Tour de France bicycle race – and win a prize!


This was a fun one, who’d have thought that taking the troublesome Paddington Bear to France would end up in lots of misadventures? The stories start before the trip, with Paddington trying to figure out what to bring with him on his travels, through getting lost in France and finally somehow ending up taking part in the Tour de France. Because of course!
