Format: Hardcover
This book is a classic. It contains the exceptional stories Thomas and Gordon, Thomas' Train, Thomas and the trucks and Thomas and the breakdown train. In the first story, the little blue engine gets carried away with himself and gets a run for his money from Gordon. In the next, Henry is ill so Thomas takes his passenger train with embarrasing results. In the one after, Thomas has a go with some troublesome trucks. Finally, while he is shunting, Thomas notices James having some trouble with some trucks, he gets a hold of the breakdown train and saves James and gets a Branch line of his very own with two coaches.

I was disappointed to find that these are not the stories as originally published (as they seem to purport to be). Changes have been made in the text to match the changes for the U.S. television series ("trucks" to "freight cars", Sir Topham Hatt, etc.) It is very frustrating when publishers feel they need to change something that was so great to begin with. The original illustrations are here and are great, but I'd suggest finding an older copy of the book or a collection with the author's original text if you are really interested in the Thomas stories as they were originally published.

This book is so hard to find, but well worth it, especially if you have boys. My kids are now 4 and 5 and still love reading, Thomas. A true classic, that will be kept for our hopeful grandkids in the far of future.

Nice books, not quite what I had hoped for. I was hoping for a little bit of a story line to go with them, but instead its simply stated. Such as in the color book, if they are showing blue engines, the page says Blue. In the shape book, if the page is showing square items, the page says Square. No story to go with it. My son lost interest in them pretty quick.

I love that this is the original oldy-timey version of the Thomas stories. My son loves the illustrations. The size is easy to handle. There are about 3-4 stories per book.
