Thomas & Friends: Gordon the Big Strong Engine by Rev. Wilbert Vere Awdry


Thomas & Friends: Gordon the Big Strong Engine by Rev. Wilbert Vere Awdry

The perfect introduction to Thomas the Tank Engine! Meet Gordon, Sodor's strong number 4 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.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
