THE POLAR EXPRESS
BY:CHRIS VAN ALLSBURG
The setting of The Polar Express first starts off at the young boys home, later traveling to the North Pole on the Polar Express and where he later sees Santa and receives the bell, and then later travels back his home.
The theme of The Polar Express is to show young readers to always believe, even if everyone around may not still believe in the same thing as you.To believe in the magic of Christmas and Santa.
The artistic style of the book is very realistic, as the reader you can see the expressions on each of the characters. All the houses are realistic. For children who still believe in Santa it gives them a realistic image of what the North Pole may look like if it were to exist. With the story being very realistic is gives a sense of the reader almost being there with the young boy on his adventures. The only characters that do not have any faces are the elves, but as the reader you can obviously tell they are elves.
