Synopsis

Thomas & Friends: Percy the Cheeky Little Engine by Rev. Reverend W. Awdry

The perfect introduction to Thomas the Tank Engine! Meet Sodor's cheeky number 6 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.

About the Author

Reverend Wilbert Awdry was born in Hampshire in 1911. He grew up close to the railway and was convinced that the steam engines all had different personalities. He used to imagine conversations between them. Later when he was grown up and his son Christopher became ill with measles, Wilbert invented the Thomas stories to entertain him. Christopher kept asking for more stories and Wilbert began writing them. The first of the railway series was published in 1945. Awdry wrote 26 Railway books in total before Christopher took over the series.
