young boy who used to adore Christmas, now has a heart full of doubt.
As he lay quietly in his bed, he suddenly hears the roar of a train
whistle. To his astonishment, he finds the train outside waiting for
him. The conductor tells him the train is called the Polar Express and
is heading to the North Pole. Thirty years later, children all over the
world lay quietly in their beds on Christmas Eve, hoping to catch a ride
on that magical train. In this issue, meet Chris Van Allsburg, the
author who inspired all of us to believe.
