The Polar Express Hardcover edition

Written and Illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg

Publisher's Summary: "Late one Christmas Eve after the town has gone to sleep, the boy boards the mysterious train that waits for him: the Polar Express bound for the North Pole.  When he arrives, Santa offers the boy any gift he desires.  The boy modestly asks for one bell from the harness of the reindeer. The gift is granted.  On the way home the gift is lost.   On Christmas morning the boy finds the bell under the tree.  The mother of the boy admires the bell, but laments that it is broken - for you see, only believers can hear the sound of the bell. 
 In strange and moving shades full of color art, Chris Van Allsburg creates an otherworldly classic of the Christmas Season.  The Polar Express evokes the same sense of mystery as his previous imaginative books, The Garden of Abdul Gasazi, Jumanji, and The Wreck of the Zephyr."

Children's Novels

 

The Railway Children

by E Nesbit 

Publishers Summary: "In this much loved children's classic first published in 1906, the comfortable lives of three well mannered siblings are greatly altered when, one evening, two men arrive at the house and take their father away.  With the family's fortunes considerably reduced in his absence, the children and their mother are forced to live in a simple country cottage near a railway station.  There the young trio- Roberta, Peter, and young Phyllis- befriend the porter and station master. 

The youngsters' days are filled with adventure and excitement, including their successful attempt to avert a horrible train disaster; but the mysterious disappearance of their father continues to haunt them. 

The solution to that painful puzzle and many details and events of the children's' lives come to vivid life in this perennial favorite, a story that has captivated generations of readers and, more recently, delighted television and motion picture audiences.  In this inexpensive, unabridged edition, it will charm a whole new audience of young readers with its warmth and appeal."

Novels for Adults

The Necropolis Railway (A Jim Stringer Mystery)

By  Andrew Martin

Bright and ambitious, young Jim Stringer moves from the English countryside to London determined to become a railway man. It is 1903, the dawn of the Edwardian age, when steam runs the nation and the railways drive progress. Jim can't believe his luck to have gotten his foot in the door at South East Railway, run out of Waterloo Station. He finds, however, that his duties involve a graveyard shift, literally — a railway line that takes coffins from London morgues to the gigantic new cemeteries being dug in the city's outskirts. He also learns that his predecessor had disappeared and that his coworkers seem to have formed an instant loathing for him. Forced to live by his wits and to arrive at his own deductions — assisted by his landlady, for whom he falls — he tries to figure out what is going on before he is issued a one-way ticket on the Necropolis Railway.

The Blackpool Highflyer (A Jim Stringer Mystery)

By  Andrew Martin

It is the summer of 1905 and Jim Stringer is copiloting a special train filled with overheated excursionists headed to Blackpool, the seaside resort on the English coast. At the moment when the train picks up speed, a huge rock comes into view farther down the tracks; it lies directly in their path. Full stop of the engine; full steam ahead with the mystery. As he did in The Necropolis Railway, Stringer doffs his railway hat and dons his detective’s derby, assisted once more by "the wife" and her brilliant detecting skills. Capturing the world of railway stations and locomotives during the Edwardian Age, The Blackpool Highflyer carries readers to a place where dark shadows lurk behind innocence and the solution to the mystery waits at the end of the line.
