Thomas and Friends: Fix and Mend by Rev. Wilbert Vere Awdry

Thomas the Tank Engine is here to help engage children and inspire them to read with confidence. This book includes two stories. One about about Thomas' tall friend Kevin the crane and the other about the shiny red engine who runs the Sodor Steamworks, Victor. With colourful pictures, short sentences and simple, phonetic-based vocabulary, children will love learning to read with Thomas. Level 1 Reading Ladder titles are perfect for new readers who are beginning to read simple stories with help. 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.
