Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sheilah Egan
February on Sodor Island is often snowy. Such is the case in February, when Percy is asked to be "extra really useful..." by Sir Topham Hatt. Because Thomas the Tank Engine's snow plow will fit on Percy, the little engine is able to help clear all of the tracks blocked by snow. All of the usual engines are featured and there is discussion amongst them about the preparations for the Valentine's Day Party. The local children are invited to the station to exchange cards, sing songs, and celebrate the day. Edward tells the others that the children sometimes give the engines Valentines. Special mail boxes are set up along with the hearts and streamers decorating the station. Because the snow has been cleared from the tracks, the party is a success. Fans of the television series (and, perhaps, of the original books) will enjoy seeing their favorite characters. The book is meant to be read aloud as the text and style are not for beginning readers, despite the size and appearance of the title. There is an activity at the end instructing readers to go back and locate certain illustrations in the pictures. There is also an invitation to put a Valentine for "your favorite engine" in the back of the book. Part of the "Thomas & Friends" series based on "The Railway Series" by The Reverend W. Awdry. Not a first purchase, but useful where the "Thomas" demand is strong. Reviewer: Sheilah Egan
