By Chris Van Allsburg

Mini hardback gift edition of this bestselling classic Christmas book.

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.
  • An animated movie starring Tom Hanks and based on the book has become a true Christmas classic since its release in 2004
