El Expreso Polar Jan 19, 2007
Beautiful book, all in Spanish, just like I wanted. Great story and in great shape.
The Polar Express Dec 26, 1999
It made me feel tingly inside. Do you believe in Santa? It's a great book for all ages. After reading it to my daughter at bedtime, I had to read it again to my husband. We both really enjoyed the story as well as the beautiful illustrations (which, by the way, won an award). It is a truly a book which should be read every Christmas Eve.
It is a great book, a wonderful Christmas adventure! Sep 19, 1999
