Paddington’s Finest Hour (617504) was one of the the last Paddington Bear books, written before the author, Michael Bond, died in 2017. This story finds Paddington getting caught up in the usual escapades that result in a funny and heart-warming story.

If you are a fan of classic adventures such as those found in Enid Blyton’s Famous Five or Arthur Ransome’s Swallows and Amazon’s then it would be worth giving The Children of Castle Rock (617505)by Natasha Farrant a try.

Alice then hears that her Dad has disappeared and she has to run away to find him, embarking on an adventure full of danger and excitement.

If you’re not quite ready to say goodbye to Christmas yet then pick up Matt Haig’s Father Christmas and Me (617502).

There’s only one way to find out, listen to the story!
