The Polar Express is a children's book written and illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg and published by Houghton Mifflin in 1985. The book is now widely considered to be a classic Christmas story for young children. It was praised for its detailed illustrations and calm, relaxing storyline. In 2004 the book was created into a motion picture movie that featured sounds and images from our very own Pere Marquette 1225 Steam Locomotive and crew!
