Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
James' face stands out in relief on the cover of this musical board book. Press it and he plays the "Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends" theme song. James starts out pulling freight cars and discovers that he left a group of cars behind, and he has to go back and fetch them. Everyone else cheers and shouts "Well, done James." 1999 (orig.

Not many children can resist a good story or a train! Add them both together in this little book, and you've got a sure hit. After reading the book, it snaps together and transforms into a simple toy train that can be pushed around. Very ingenious. And who doesn't love Thomas and his friends? :-)

I gave this to my 2 year old great nephew for Christmas. He loves trains and was very excited when he opened it. He started to look at it right away. When his older brother showed him that the wheels moved he was even happier. I would say this was a home run.
