Summary (via Amazon):
. . .
A young boy, lying awake one Christmas Eve, is welcomed aboard a magical trip to the North Pole . . .
. . .
A quiet, enchanting story that celebrates the spirit of the season. Thanks to the books wide design, the beautiful art truly sweeps across the pages as The Polar Express swiftly carries the children towards the North Pole. I’m happy to see that movie still maintains the qualities of the original while adding more to it.
The appeal of this book is high. I can imagine this book being read at bedtime on Christmas Eve. Because I already knew what to expect from having seen the movie a bunch of times, I was really drawn to the artwork as the narrative softly played in the back of my mind. The Polar Express is a great book to have on your bookshelf.
