Item Description...
In adapting Chris Van Allsburg's beloved, 1986 Caldecott Medal winning children's Christmas fable, director Robert Zemeckis fused the technologies of live-action motion capture and CGI to an unprecedented degree, producing a visual sensibility that perfectly embodies the netherworld between fantasy and reality that made the book so inviting. Musically, Zemeckis has shrewdly teamed longtime collaborator Alan Silvestri with hit tunesmith Glen Ballard for the original half his soundtrack, then given the rest over to a star-packed tribute to pop Christmas past that includes such timeless chestnuts as Bing Crosby's "White Christmas," "Winter Wonderland" by the Andrew Sisters and Perry Como's "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas." But the Silvestri/Ballard originals here are the main event, from Tom Hanks' vigorous vocal mugging on the title track and "Hot Chocolate" through the innocent charm of "When Christmas Comes to Town" and the over-the-top, jumpin' jive of Steven Tyler's "Rockin' On Top of the World." Josh Groban's "Believe" overdoes the treacle, but Silvestri's rich choral workouts and underscore suite are grand Hollywood-scaled tributes to the spirit of the season. This deluxe, illustrated children's book format special gift edition features a number of scenes from the film and an actual encased jingle bell embedded in the cover. --Jerry McCulley

Album Description
Promising to be this holiday season's family film blockbuster, the revolutionary computer-animated The Polar Express-based on a best-selling children's book, starring the voice of Tom Hanks and directed by Academy Award winner Robert Zemeckis-is a classic Christmas film with a modern look. The soundtrack album also mixes the classic with the contemporary, with immortal versions of the greatest Christmas songs ever penned, such as "White Christmas" from Bing Crosby and new recordings from Josh Groban "Believe", Aerosmith's Steven Tyler "Rockin' On Top Of The World" and others. This Christmas everyone will be getting on board The Polar Express.

This is a Wonderful Book  Feb 25, 2007
My grandchild picked this out for me to read last night and I had almost forgotten what a wonderful book it is. It has a mystical beauty about it that you can't explain but you feel it nevertheless. The artwork is perfect just like all of Van Allsburg's books. He's my favorite children's book author. The movie is another thing. Where the book is mysterious and beautiful and somehow captures the wonder and awe of the Christmas season, I think the movie is just creepy--the addition of stereotyped ethnic characters was all contrived and wrong.
Book-CD Deluxe Edition a disappointment!  Mar 5, 2005
I was shocked that a $34.98 book/cd was so small and has only nine paperboard type pages of art work. The "silver bell" in this package (as in another book set and the Lionel train set that I bought) is a cheap metal chrome plated bell and in no way resembles the beautiful bell illustrated in the books and movie. Surely someone will make an exact replica before next season.
The book should be priced at no more than $18 - a typical top line CD. Of course the music is fine....but consider buying the music CD only....for a lot less money! Better, wait for a clsoe out sale on this item!
Great Soundtrack!  Dec 23, 2004
I loved every song on the soundtrack. It's the cd I play most this Christmas.
Polar Express "De-railed"  Dec 15, 2004
What a disappointment in the book. It's about the size of a CD case, the bell is a cheap $0.10 metal bell like you would put on your cat's collar and I can't believe I spent $30.00. Do not buy the book. Just get the CD!
Disappointed - "Deluxe Edition" Polar Express!!  Dec 14, 2004
I did't find this edition of Polar Express very "deluxe"! The book itself measures only about 3 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches. I "assumed", which is always a mistake, that the board book would be similar in size to the hard cover edition. I think $32.00 is a very exorbitant price for this package. I'm very disappointed, but not willing to spend the shipping costs to send it back. I would not advise you to make this purchase.
