Twenty-five years ago, a mysterious train rolled up to a young boy's front door, taking him on a trip he would never forget. For millions of readers around the world, the story of this child's Christmas Eve journey has become a beloved holiday classic.
Since its publication, The Polar Express has been honored with many awards, including the Caldecott Medal. It has inspired dozens of seasonal train rides throughout the country, as well as countless elementary school pageants. In 2003, the story's magic was adapted for the big screen.
This special gift edition of The Polar Express contains a compact disc recording of the story read by renowned actor Liam Neeson, and a keepsake ornament commemorating the book's 25th anniversary. It is the perfect gift for all those (of any age) who believe, come Christmas Eve, that they, too, will hear the sweet sound of a reindeer's silver bell.
