A funny picture book about Paddington, the world’s favourite bear – now a major movie star!
Paddington is excited to be organising an Easter egg hunt for his neighbours. But, from finding empty supermarket shelves, to buying a box of broken Easter eggs, Paddington wonders if the hunt can ever go ahead. That is, until Mr Gruber’s book on Roman mosaics and some sticky marmalade give him a brilliant idea . . .
A deliciously funny Easter story, perfect for Paddington fans!
