This 1985 children’s book was written by Chris Van Allsburg. It has since been hailed as a Christmas classic that was brought to the big screen by Warner Bros. Studios.
The story revolves around a doubting boy with conflicted feelings about believing in things that may not be real.
One Christmas Eve, our hero boy lies in bed waiting and hoping that he can hear the sound of bells from Santa’s sleigh. Instead, he hears the roar and whistle of a train. He looks out the window to discover no reindeer, sleigh or Santa but instead, a powerful, mighty, train!
The young boy is invited aboard the train by a conductor that keeps checking his pocket watch, almost impatiently. The boy almost reluctantly, boards the train, where he discovers other pajama clad children just like himself. As the train takes them on their way to the North Pole, they are served hot chocolate and fresh warm baked cookies to enjoy.
The journey is about friendship, bravery and the magic of Christmas! A revelation that, the wonder of life never fades for those that dare to believe!
