Late one Christmas Eve after the town has gone to sleep, a boy boards the mysterious train that waits for him: the Polar Express bound for the North Pole. When he arrives, Santa offers the boy 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 Caldecott Medal in the US. The author refuses to have a paperback edition published and as a result the hardback has sold over 3 million copies in the US alone.
