Snuggle up for storytime with Liam Neeson and The Polar Express

Published on: 01 December 2017 Author: Catriona Wightman

If you need a wintry treat this year, we heartily recommend getting your hands on a copy of The Polar Express.

The Polar Express

The classic children's story tells the tale of a young boy who boards a mysterious train that is waiting for him and meets Santa at the North Pole.

But when Santa says he can have any gift he wants, what will he choose?

The Polar Express is a classic story for this time of year - and it's been brilliantly brought to life by none other than Liam Neeson.

Yes, the book now comes with a CD featuring Liam's dulcet tones and quite frankly, we can't imagine a more perfect fit.

So gather the family or run a nice, hot bath and luxuriate in the wintry wonder of The Polar Express. And if you just can't wait, you're in luck - we have an extract of Liam's reading that you can listen to right now...
