Thomas' travels around the Island of Sodor; through the station, over the level crossing, under the bridge and past the water tower, docks and windmill. Then fold out the pages to create an amazing 3D playmat. And with play pieces of all your favourite engines, early readers can make up their own adventures for Thomas and his friends! There are hours of creative play to be had in this book for children aged 3 and up. Also look out for: Thomas & Friends: Colourful Little Engines and Thomas & Friends: Engines to the Rescue. Magnet Book: Thomas the Tank Engine has been delighting generations of children for over 70 years. It all began as a story made up by the Reverand W. Awdry to entertain his son when he had measles. Now millions of people across the world have grown up with the tales of Sodor Island, enchanted by the adventures of Thomas and his friends, James Percy, Gordon, and Toby, and all the other engines that work on the Fat Controller's railway. Have you met them all?
