Thomas videos continually are top sellers in all markets, and the release of each new Thomas DVD has created great excitement. Thomas books based on videos also do sensationally in all markets. Here is the latest book from a video. These three stories from the newest release are filled with the same gentle humor and familiar friends as are all of the very popular Thomas Picturebacks.
In the early 1940s, a loving father crafted a small, blue, wooden engine for his son, Christopher. The stories that this father, the Reverend W. Awdry, made up to accompany this wonderful toy were first published in 1945. He continued to create new adventures and characters until 1972 when he retired from writing. Reverend W Awdry died in 1997 at age 85.
