Three Cheers for Thomas by

The perfect introduction to Thomas the Tank Engine! This beautifully illustrated picture book finds Thomas in crisis when he finds himself going slower and slower. He is delighted when the Fat Controller tells him that he needs new wheels. He can't wait to puff around Sodor showing them off. Three Cheers for Thomas is a great way to introduce the little blue engine to children aged 2 and up. Little ones will love meeting classic characters such as Percy, James, Gordon, and Toby down on The Fat Controller's railway. Also look out for: A Visit to London for Thomas the Tank Engine. Thomas has been teaching children lessons about life and friendship for over 70 years. He ranks alongside other beloved character such as Paddington Bear, Winnie-the-Pooh and Peter Rabbit as an essential part of our literary heritage.
