One Christmas Eve, when the narrator is just a boy, he catches a ride on the Polar Express, a mysterious train bound for the North Pole. Santa offers him any gift he wants, and the boy asks for a silver bell from Santa's sleigh.

At the stroke of midnight, when the boy boards the train back home, he discovers that the bell is gone! Was it all just a dream? Will the bell ever reappear?

This beloved favorite reminds readers of the magic in believing, and reading it aloud makes for a wonderful family holiday tradition.
