Celebrate 35 years of The Polar Express with this special anniversary edition with audio CD read by Liam Neeson!
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. Liam Neeson's gravitas lends the story just the right sense of magic and possibility in the book and CD edition.
