“The best book about Santa.”—Entertainment Weekly

“The Polar Express is magic indeed. ”—The New York Times

“Allsburg's mix of meticulousness and mysticism is his own, and his quiet Christmas bell, now run, will not stop ringing.”—Adam Gopnik, author of The King in the Window

“The sumptuous pastel effects make this one of Van Allsburg's most treasured visions.”—Newsweek 
 
“As always, the forms are sculptured, the perspectives as dazzling as they are audacious, the colors rich and elegant, the use of light and shadow masterly.”—Horn Book Guide
 
“Even the most hardened Santa doubters might find in The Polar Express the faith to believe again.”—American Bookseller
