From the Publisher
Annotation On Christmas Eve a young boy who truly believes in Santa Claus is invited to board the Polar Express--a train that travels directly to the North Pole. Once there, the boy is chosen by Santa himself to receive the very first gift of the Christmas season. The gift the boy selects, a bell from the harness of one of Santa's reindeers, becomes a magical reminder of the boy's very special night. Illustrated with oil paintings. Winner of the 1986 Caldecott Medal.
First Line On Christmas eve, many years ago, I lay quietly in my bed. I did not rustle the sheets. I breathed slowly and silently. I was listening for a sound--a sound a friend told me I'd never hear--the ringing of Santa's sleigh.
Annotation 2 On Christmas Eve a young boy who truly believes in Santa Claus is invited to board the Polar Express--a train that brings him and other young believers directly to the North Pole. Once there, the boy is chosen by Santa himself to receive the very first gift of the Christmas season. The gift the boy selects, a bell from the harness of one of Santa's reindeers, becomes a magical reminder of the boy's very special night. A look at not only the magic of Christmas, but also at the power of faith and the wonder of innocence, THE POLAR EXPRESS is illustrated with carefully detailed pastel oil paintings on brown paper and is the winner of the 1986 Caldecott Medal.
