Thomas & Friends: Thomas the Really Useful Engine by Rev. Reverend W. Awdry

The perfect introduction to Thomas the Tank Engine! Meet Sodor's cheeky number 1 engine and read about his jobs, his adventures and his friends. My First Railway Library is a great way to pass on the tradition of Thomas. With bright colourful pages and rhyming text, children aged 2 and up will love meeting classic characters such as Percy, James, Gordon, and Toby down on The Fat Controller's railway. Thomas & friends have been teaching children lessons about life and friendship for over 70 years. Thomas ranks alongside other beloved character such as Paddington Bear, Winnie-the-Pooh and Peter Rabbit as an essential part of our literary heritage.
