The Polar Express: Mini Hardback Edition (For the kids at heart)
€9.50 – Tales for Tadpoles
This beloved tale of Christmas Eve is a family favourite at this time of year. The story is about late on Christmas Eve, after the town has gone to sleep, a boy boards a mysterious train that waits for him: the Polar Express bound for the North Pole. When he arrives there, Santa offers him any gift he desires. The boy modestly asks for one bell from the reindeer’s harness. It turns out to be a very special gift, for only believers in Santa can hear it ring.
There is so much more to explore in #DublinTown and shopping streets like Grafton Street and Henry Street are filled with great retailers as are the many side streets just off each of them so go to town when you are last minute shopping this year!
