Paddington's Prize Picture
By Michael Bond, Illustrated by R. W. Alley
Paddington Bear has charmed readers of all ages for almost 60 years! Now part of the I Can Read line, Michael Bond’s classic character will delight beginning readers with his curious nature and nose for adventure.
Paddington discovers a love of painting when Mr. Gruber shows him just how fun it can be. But he’s not the only one—Mr. Brown has an artistic streak, too. So when a painting contest comes to town, the winning picture is a surprise to all. Because when Paddington is involved, the ordinary turns extraordinary!
Paddington’s Prize Picture is a Level One I Can Read book, which means it’s perfect for children learning to sound out words and sentences.
