The perfect introduction to Thomas the Tank Engine! Huge Hiro is a wise engine from Japan, who was lost for many years. Thomas and his friends wanted to help get Hiro back on the rails again so he wouldn't be sent for scrap, but could they fix their friend without The Fat Controller finding out? Based on the classic tales from the Reverend W. Awdry, with a stunning, modern look. 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.
