Havering Children’s Paddington Stories Volume 1
Earlier this year, Havering Arts Development and Havering Libraries invited children to send in stories about the much loved bear.
Imaginative tales featured include Paddington taking a trip to the North Pole, battling an alien and saving the crown jewels.
