Move over, Thomas the Tank Engine. It’s all about the Octopus’s Garden now.
Ringo Starr, famed for his Thomas voiceover (not to mention a spot of drumming) has given permission for a children’s book to be based on the Beatles song that he penned.
The picture book will include a CD featuring music from Starr that has not been released previously.
