The perfect introduction to Thomas the Tank Engine! Spencer is taking the Duke and Duchess for a tour around the Island of Sodor, but he soon gets into bother! Will the other engines be able to help him? Thomas & Friends 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. 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.
