About Thomas at the Steelworks/Friends to the Rescue (Thomas & Friends: Journey Beyond Sodor)
A Thomas & Friends 2-in-1 storybook based on an all-new movie adventure—with stickers!
Two Thomas & Friends books in one—plus stickers! Train-loving boys and girls ages 3 to 7 will be thrilled by this beautifully illustrated storybook based on an all-new Thomas & Friends movie adventure.
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. Thomas & Friends now make up a big extended family of engines and others on the Island of Sodor. They appear not only in books but also in television shows and movies and as a wide variety of beautifully made toys. The adventures of Thomas and his friends, which are always, ultimately, about friendship, have delighted generations of train-loving boys and girls for more than 70 years and will continue to do so for generations to come.
