Several treasured titles make a comeback as reissues. In preparation for the November release of the book-based film starring Tom Hanks, Houghton has reshot the artwork for the 1986 Caldecott Medal- winning The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg, sprucing up this perennial holiday favorite.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

The product description was not accurate, but I consider the product to be much better than what was described. I'd describe the product as an illustrated BOOK containing a DVD. I wish I had known in time and I would have bought more like it. I had a problem the first time I used your website to order this. Somehow, the application concluded that I wanted the shipment delivered to the Wal-Mart store in area code 77406, while what I wanted was my normal Wal-Mart store in 77469. I never could find a way to change the delivery location so I gave up, cancelled the order, and left the site. When I came back in, I found the right store, and from then on, all worked well. I suggest that you create an EASY way for an infrequent visitor to change the store where the shipment needs to go. All things considered, a great experience. This survey is becoming annoying. I don't really care to have a nickname, and if it asks me one more time to change that entry, I'll enter a string of random characters. Jim

My 2 year old son loves it when I read this sweet story to him before bed. He loves Thomas the Train and the Polar Express as well.

WE TOOK OUR GRANDCHILDREN TO THE POLAR EXPRESS TRAIN RIDE AND WANTED THEM TO HAVE THEIR OWN KEEPSAKE BOOK TO WRITE IN AND REMIND THEM OF OUR SPECIAL EVENING TOGETHER. THEY ARRIVED PROMPTLY AND WE WERE ABLE TO GIVE THEM IN TIME FOR THEM TO READ THE STORY BEFORE THE TRIP. THANK YOU FOR CARRYING THIS PRODUCT.

I have an almost 3-yr. old grandson that loves all trains, but the Polar Express in particular. He has watched the movie many, many times. I thought the book would be great for him this Christmas, however; I was very disappointed after looking through the book once received. I expected this book to have pictures that would depict the movie, but instead it showed page after page of landscape/terrain that the train traveled through on its way to the North Pole. Most of the Polar Express movie took place on the train but there are only 2 pages that show pictures on the train and they are not very good (1 with kids sitting and 1 with waiters serving hot chocolate). They don't even show the conductor in any of the pages/pictures. I will still give this book to my grandson but only because I don't want to return it.
