It's over fifty years since the publication of the first Railway Series stories by the Rev. W. Awdry. To celebrate, the publishers have reissued them in six special books, each containing four famous tales of Thomas and his friends. Larger and chunkier than the originals, these books feature all the original text and illustrations and are redesigned in a way that makes every spread unique. Easier to hold and look at, this format is ideal for parents and children to share together.
