Description

In the new Thomas & Friends direct-to-DVD movie, Day of the Diesels, the devious Diesel Engines are up to no good—and it's going to take some 'steamwork' to stop them. Little boys age 3-6 will thrill to this full-color, hardcover storybook that captures all of the fun, mystery, and excitement of Thomas the Tank Engine's latest adventure.




About the Author
In 1944, a country vicar, the Reverend W Awdry, wrote the stories he had been telling his two young sons about a group of engines with very recognizable personalities. In 1945, the first book featuring Thomas and the other Really Useful Engines was published, and in the 60 years since, the tales of these friendly engines have become beloved classics around the world.

"From the Trade Paperback edition."



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.
