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.

Lovely story, tiny book though


We love this story, but was a little disappointed at how tiny the book was when it came......size-wise it's not much bigger than a Mr. Men book.



Thumbs up !


Was an excellent purchase for Christmas time.
