Thomas and Friends
story begins in 1917 in the sleepy village of Box in Wiltshire, England. A young boy lies awake in his bed, listening to steam engines huffing and puffing along the nearby Great Western Railway. To the little boy tucked up in bed, listening to the engines, it sounds very much like the trains are talking to each other. The young boy is Wilbert Awdry, later to become the Reverend W. Awdry, the creator of "The Railway Series" and the most famous tank engine in the world "Thomas". With Thomas & Friends, there is a rich world to discover and explore. Thomas and Friends
, teaches lessons of true friendship, fair play, and team work. Thomas & Friends will inspire your child to believe that little engineers, like little engines , can do "BIG THINGS". Thomas and Friends has spread this message and influenced all over the world for young engineers. Thomas and Friends
