Details: Product Description Take a ride aboard the Polar Express in this award-winning, classic holiday story, complete with an ornament gift, perfect for every child’s library. A young boy, lying awake one Christmas Eve, is welcomed aboard a magical train to the North Pole. The Polar Express makes its way to the city atop the world, where the boy will make his Christmas wish. This is a story for all who believe in the spirit of Christmas and those who treasure the sound of a reindeer’s silver bell. The Polar Express is the 1986 Caldecott Medal winner, and reading the story together is a beloved holiday tradition held by generations of families. It was also made into an animated feature film starring Tom Hanks. In this special edition, the inimitable artistry of Chris Van Allsburg is highlighted with a new jacket design and expanded interior layout. Includes an author’s note and downloadable audio read by Liam Neeson.     Review   “The best book about Santa.”— Entertainment Weekly “The Polar Express is magic indeed. ”— The New York Times “Allsburg's mix of meticulousness and mysticism is his own, and his quiet Christmas bell, now run, will not stop ringing.”—Adam Gopnik, author of The King in the Window “The sumptuous pastel effects make this one of Van Allsburg's most treasured visions.”— Newsweek    “As always, the forms are sculptured, the perspectives as dazzling as they are audacious, the colors rich and elegant, the use of light and shadow masterly.”— Horn Book Guide   “Even the most hardened Santa doubters might find in The Polar Express the faith to believe again.”— American Bookseller   1986 Caldecott Medal Winner A New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book of the Year ALA Notable Book for Children Booklist Editors' Choice Horn Book Fanfare Selection Reading Rainbow Review Book About the Author Chris Van Allsburg is the winner of two Caldecott Medals, for Jumanji and The Polar Express, as well as the recipient of a Caldecott Honor Book for The Garden of Abdul Gasazi.
