Late one Christmas Eve, a boy boards a mysterious train that waits for him: the Polar Express bound for the North Pole. When he arrives, 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.
