Thomas and Friends King of the Railway by Emily Stead


Thomas and Friends King of the Railway by Emily Stead

This is a wonderful companion to the new special film King of the Railway. It features profiles on all the much-loved Thomas and Friends characters - plus all you need to know about the new faces in the new film - Stephen, Millie, Caitlin and Connor and the Earl of Sodor. Read up on the most exciting moments from King of the Railway - the arrival of the Earl of Sodor, the race between Gordon and Spencer, the runaway train and when Stephen comes off the track and ends up lost in the old mine. There are also four amazing Augmented Reality sequences supported by a free app on iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Android: Drive Thomas around your room; Help repair Stephen into a bright, new engine; Who will win the race - Gordon or Spencer?; and Help Thomas load the cargo crates.
