"Straight from the silver screen comes the story of the Polar Express, with an eight-page color insert of movie scenes."
- According to this book, the events of the story took place in 1955. This contradicts the film because a magazine with the date of December 29, 1956 appears, meaning it could not have taken place earlier than 1957.
- It is also mentioned that Hero Boy's mother was pregnant.
