Up until now, Paddington has managed to avoid school. But the Inspector himself catches up with him and packs him off. After one day, even the teacher wonders whether there is anything new he can teach a certain bear from Darkest Peru.
And Paddington's birthday treat doesn't exactly turn out as the Browns had planned either. A pleasant day at the seaside ends with Paddington flying through the air. And as for his attempts at keeping fit - well, as always, one thing leads to another.
