The Polar Express

by

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. Chris van Allsburg has created a magical Christmas classic for which he was awarded the most prestigious award in the USA - the Caldecott Medal. The author refuses to allow a paperback edition and as a result the hardback has sold over 3 million copies in the USA alone. Hide synopsis

  • Classic Christmas Book Jul 2, 2009
    by samhobsonhotmailcom

    The Polar Express is a classic story for all ages. It reminds us of the importance of believing in the majic of Christmas, when the world wants to take it away. The artwork is exceptional. This is a must have book for yourself or as a gift to a friend, child, or grandchild.

  • Cute Oct 19, 2007
    by Selina

    The illustrations are beautiful and add to the dream like story. Its every kids dream to go to the North Pole and meet Santa himself. The ending where the boy wants a bell from the reindeer's harness is very touching. Only the children who beleive in the magical world can hear the tingling sound. The boys parents can't hear the bell's enchanting music. The boy too comments on how the bell started to fade on him too until it was only a memory. The looking back and remembering the wonders of christmas makes it a great books for adults too.
