When a technology fair comes to the Island of Sodor, Thomas the Tank Engine is worried that robots and faster trains will replace him. But when thieves try to steal plans for a flying car, Thomas saves the day and proves that steam engines are really useful!
Train-loving boys and girls ages 2-5--and Little Golden Book collectors of all ages--will love this exciting new Thomas & Friends(TM) Little Golden Book. In the early 1940s, a loving father crafted a small blue wooden train engine for his son, Christopher. The stories that this father, the Reverend W Awdry, made up to accompany the wonderful toy were first published in 1945 and became the basis for the Railway Series, a collection of books about Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends--and the rest is history.
