About Ride Along the Countryside (Thomas & Friends)
Fall is a busy time for all the engines on the Island of Sodor. Children can be part of the fun when they follow Thomas and his friends as they celebrate the season. The back cover includes a cutout game.
In 1944, a country vicar, The Reverend W Awdry, wrote out the stories he had been telling his two young sons about a group of engines with very recognizable personality traits. 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.
