About the Author

In 1944, a country vicar, the Reverend W Awdry, wrote the stories he had been telling his two young sons about a group of engines with very recognizable personalities. In 1945, the first book featuring Thomas and the other Really Useful Engines was published, and in the 60 years since, the tales of these friendly engines have become beloved classics around the world.


From the Trade Paperback edition.

I love these little books. They are inexpensive and just the right treat for the little Thomas lovers in the household.

Ours books were sitting on the steps when we came home. My children (boy and girl--three and five) couldn't wait to open the box and kept bugging me to stop making lunch and read to them, Pleeeaaase! (I mean what more can a Mom want. Children begging to be read to!)

In any case, Ms. Audrey-the-Librarian (below) outlines the story fairly well. Poor Percy sees the parade dragon and the usual sort of Thomas silliness ensues.

As to this books being a primer... I am not at all sure I agree that this book is for preschoolers and kindergarteners: Step I. My daughter is going into school in the fall and I doubt she would get far in this book.

It is a shame that they don't have any sample pages to peruse so you could see for yourself what the language is like; but some of the words included are: Thomas, Percy, Sir Topham Hatt, parade, dragon, night, tomorrow, thinking, rumble, scary, brave, cries, shut, next....

Sample text:

"Percy hears a rumble.

Something is coming.

Percy opens his eyes."

Despite these reservations, obviously most children will eventually be able to read this cute story for themselves, and before that time there is always we caregivers, so we give "Thomas and Percy and the Dragon" 5 stars.

My 3 year old can recite the whole book, and my 18 month old can finish the last word in every 2 lines, where they rhyme. The younger one would imitate how Thomas shuts his eyes tight at his first sight of the dragon... and then laughs out loud... very cute. It's been taped up several times because my younger one ripped them while excitedly flipping the pages. Wish they could offer laminated pages while keeping the price low.

I got this book from the library with a group of similar books....after I had to return them she continued to ask for the "Dragon" book.
I couldn't find it in print at any of our local book stores and was delighted to find it on Amazon. It came in a few days and made
my granddaughter very happy to have her own copy of "the dragon" book!

Format: Paperback
Not one of the overly preachy Thomas titles, although Percy is made fun of for being afraid of the Dragon. Worth buying because it features the Chinese dragon, which is one of the best and most compelling trains to add to a Thomas collection.
