My son loves anything doing with Thomas. He is learning to read and this is a story that he loves to hear over and over again, so that he can repeat it to me.

I agree with all of the other reviews - I just wish I'd read them before I bought it for my son. B&N returned it for me.

This is a nasty little story that has no place in any kids book collection. The story is mean and Diesel 10 goes beyond his usual cranky self and straight to name calling, threats and destruction. The story has no good message and doesn't even come close to a happy ending. I enjoy reading other Thomas books with my daughter and watching Thomas movies which are light and happy (the way a book for a tot should be). This book was a gift and served as a warning for me to read the books before I buy them for my daughter. So far all the other Thomas material has been great, buy any other Thomas book than this one and you'll be happy :)

This book is awful compared to the many other great Thomas stories. The violent themes, use of the word 'hate', and pretty much a senseless story makes this one to avoid. It seems that everything related to the 'Thomas and the Magic Railroad' is of the same poor quality. Brit Alcroft should be embarassed.

I was stunned by the violent themes throughout this story. It is unlike any of the other Thomas stories I have read with my son (2 1/2) with demeaning name-calling, threats of destruction and phrases such as "I'll smash him". The simple joy of the Thomas stories where the engines get into trouble from their own quirks is absent. I find myself editing the text to tone down the violence. Unfortunately, my son is fascinated by Diesel 10's metal claw or the book would "disappear"...
