About the Author

The Reverend W. Awdry is fondly remembered as the creator of Thomas the Tank Engine. The little blue engine and his friends on the Island of Sodor were originally invented to amuse the reverend's son, Christopher, when he was recovering from a bout of the measles. The first book in The Railway Series, entitled The Three Railway Engines, was published in 1945.
