The perfect introduction to Thomas the Tank Engine! Spencer is a sleek and shiny engine. When he takes the Duke for a tour around the Island of Sodor, he gets into a spot of bother ... will the other engines be able to help? 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.
