About the Author

In the early 1940s, a loving father crafted a small, blue, wooden engine for his son, Christopher. The stories that this father, the Reverend W. Awdry, made up to accompany this wonderful toy were first published in 1945. He continued to create new adventures and characters until 1972 when he retired from writing. Reverend W Awdry died in 1997 at age 85.

Format: Board book
I think this box set is great (I like it so much better than the Thomas stories based on the tv shows), but in my opinion (and my toddler's) Blue Train, Green Train steals the show as the star in this collection. It is much catchier and more fun as a result than the 3 other books (not to say that the other ones aren't good, of course, just that we really love Blue Train, Green Train). It may be a matter of personal taste, but Blue Train, Green Train seems to have better rhymes and rhythm than the other books. I gave it four stars because I wish I liked the other 3 books as much as Blue Train, Green Train--but this might not be fair for the set as Blue Train is an outstanding book in my opinion.

This set is overall a really good value. The board books are on the smaller side (not sure of the exact dimensions, but they are the same size as the other Dr. Suess board books if you have seen those)--I think they the perfect size for a toddler to hold and flip through. The board books are great quality in both physical materials/design/sturdiness and writing (and the case is absolutely adorable) so it is worth checking out. But if money is tight just buy a used copy of Blue Train, Green Train.

My 3 year old son LOVES Thomas and Friends. He actually loves any type of train. Before bed, he chooses one of these books to read. Sometimes I have to make him choose another because we've read these so much. He's even memorized some of the parts. I would definitely recommend this to be added to a child's collection. I really like the nice little box they are stored in. It helps to teach my son how to put things away when he's done with them and the value of taking care of his things.

The good:
These four books are sturdy and come in a small box. These are 'board books' and can stand up to the most destructive toddler whims. My daughters enjoy them somewhat, even though they are very brief.

The bad:
We really only like one of the books (Green Train Blue Train) a lot, the others leave a lot to be desired in terms of rhyming and relevance to the Thomas and friends story line. Uninspired, would be a good descriptor.

The ugly:
I was expecting some the original childrens' stories from the creator of Thomas and Friends from the description of the product. Instead, these are recent efforts, and don't have much charm to them at all. They don't seem to have any particular lesson or message to them at all.

If your kids are Thomas freaks, and they aren't picky - pick up these books at a discount. Otherwise, you probably would be better off buying other serialized Thomas books instead.

The book was great. By nephews loved it. A lot smaller than I originally thought, but I guess for 3 year olds, it is perfect.

This small case is perfect to keep handy for children. The books are just the perfect size and all four fit perfectly in the case. The stories are also adorable. Great buy especially for the price.

I bought these for my grandson. He is in luv with Thomas the train set. He also luvs to read.I luv that he can carry these books with him in the car or to the beach or where ever he goes. They are the perfect size for a 3 year old.These are 'board books' and can stand up to the most destructive toddler. Nice illustrations and lots of repetition though, which is good for beginning readers.I received this product free/discounted in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

My son is a huge Thomas fan, and he LOVES all four of these books. He also loves the box, but he was a bit rough with it so I've got it stored until he's older (he's 14 months old). He will pick up a book and bring it to us to read - he doesn't seem to have a favorite, although I feel like I've read "A Crack in the Track" about a 100 times now. I found it odd that a number of reviewers say that Blue Train, Green Train is the best - it's probably my son's least favorite, although he does like it. Great deal for four books!
