The perfect introduction to Thomas the Tank Engine! When Emily the Stirling Single engine first arrived on Sodor, not everyone was friendly to her. Then Emily showed how Really Useful she could be, when she saved an engine and braved the Black Loch Run! Now Emily is a member of the famous Steam Team. Thomas Engine Adventures is a great way to pass on the tradition of Thomas to early readers. Children aged 2 and up will love meeting classic characters such as Percy, James, Gordon, and Toby down on The Fat Controller's railway. These fun, short stories come with a bonus spot-and-see activity at the end. Perfect for bedtime. Thomas has been teaching children lessons about life and friendship for over 70 years. He ranks alongside other beloved character such as Paddington Bear, Winnie-the-Pooh and Peter Rabbit as an essential part of our literary heritage.
