In the new direct-to-DVD movie Misty Island Rescue, the engines of Sodor are building a new Search and Rescue Center—and finding Thomas the Tank Engine is their first rescue mission! Boys, ages three to six, will enjoy this handsome jacketed-hardcover storybook, which captures all of the fun, mystery, and thrills of Thomas’ newest adventure.
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.
