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.

My son loves these thomas the train books!
Jessica Le
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.

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.

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.

My daughter was beyond excited when she opened the box. The stories are simplistic, but she likes them and likes identifying all the engines she knows. The size is perfect for her to take a couple of them along when we're out and about.

I also think this is a good value for the money. Board books of this size can sell for $5.00 on their own, so $10.00 for a whole set is a good deal. I'd recommend it as a gift for any Thomas fan!

My son loves anything Thomas - so naturally he loves this book set. The set consists of 4 books in a carrying case. The books are on the smaller side but that makes it easier for my 2 year old to "read" the books by himself. I also love the fact that the set consists of Board Books as my son tends to play a little rough with his books. These books will last a long time and my son loves the stories.

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.

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!
