Synopsis

Thomas the Tank Engine Manual by Chris Oxlade

Aimed at the 3-8 age group, this innovative book applies the Haynes treatment to one of the most popular children's characters. Inspired by the world-famous Haynes manuals, this book explains how Thomas works, how his driver operates him, and how the engineers of the Sodor railway keep him in tip-top condition. Some of Thomas' friends also feature, with Henry's overhaul, for example, offering the chance for young readers to see how a steam engine is taken apart and refitted. This brightly designed book will delight children and parents alike.

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