R.W. Alley has been illustrating the Paddington books since the 1990s. His artwork now appears on the full range of picture books, many of which have been re-illustrated by him in recent years, along with the iApp versions. Although best known for his full-color work, Bob Alley's delightful pen and ink line drawings appear throughout the pages of the latest novels, including "Paddington Races Ahead," which was published in the UK in April 2012. www.rwalley.com

In Jonathan Rockefeller's Paddington Gets in a Jam, Paddington goes next door to borrow a cup of sugar from his neighbor Mr. Curry, who is in a panic because he's expecting a visit from his Great Aunt Matilda. And so, Paddington volunteers to help Mr. Curry with his to-do list before her imminent arrival.

Throughout the afternoon, Paddington attempts items on the list - repair the pipes in the bathroom, vacuum the floors, install new wallpaper, bake a cake... But in typical Paddington fashion, nothing goes to plan. The pipes burst and flood the bathroom. The vacuum cleaner misbehaves and leaves dust everywhere. Paddington adds too much self-rising flour to the cake and his efforts at wallpapering turn into catastrophic (and sticky) chaos!

Will Paddington be able to fix everything before Great Aunt Matilda arrives?
