    Only Half the Collection

    Excellent artwork but this 60th Anniversary 'collection' is simply the first 14 books written by the author and excludes his remaining 12 books. If you want the 'Early Half' of Thomas and Friends, this is fine but know up front what's missing.

    My son's name is Thomas, and his daddy is into model trains, so

    My son's name is Thomas, and his daddy is into model trains, so that I would initially buy this book is a given. What surprised and delighted me is how different these tales are from those based on the PBS Thomas series. All the wit, charm and sense of place have been stripped from the original telling, and all that remains of the based-on books are stories about a blue train.
    We began reading a story a night from this collection when our Thomas was about three months old. They are on the longish side, so I kept watching for squirming. There was none. I'm not sure if it was the engaging illustrations, or the apropos sound effects, or both, that held his interest, but his interest was held and we've already read through all these stories twice.

    The original stories

    Our daughter enjoys watching the shows on PBS, but more than that she enjoys this book and the stories in it. This is a comprehensive compilation of the original stories that the TV show is based on.

    The stories, while with a distinct british flavor, are an excellent read, and each one is only four or five pages long. Perfect for reading one before bed.

    Daughter loves this!

    My daughter is a huge Thomas fan. She LOVES this book! After we checked it out of the library about 5 times, she got this as a Christmas gift. She loves the stories, and I like the fact we can read a couple of chapters in succession, or just pick one and it still ends without having to keep going all night.

    Great collection

    If your child loves Thomas stories, this is a great collection to have. It has lots of the original stories all in one book with beautiful classic illustrations. Some of these stories are hard to find in their original format. My 3 year old loves them.
