Thomas and the Spring Surprise (Thomas & Friends Picture Books)

Join Thomas the Tank Engine as he helps Farmer McColl with a special task on the Island of Sodor.

When lambs are born on Farmer McColl's farm one spring day, Thomas is given the chance to prove what a Really Useful Engine he is by collecting them fresh straw. But with so many distractions along the way, will Thomas manage to fetch the straw in time?

Adapted from the hugely popular classic story library, The Spring Surprise, this upsized picture book is the perfect introduction to Thomas for young readers.

Thomas & Friends is a great way to pass on the tradition of Thomas to early readers. Children aged 2 and up will love meeting classic characters such as Percy, James, Gordon, and Toby down on The Fat Controller’s railway.

Thomas has been teaching children lessons about life and friendship for over 70 years. He ranks alongside other beloved character such as Paddington Bear, Winnie-the-Pooh and Peter Rabbit as an essential part of our literary heritage.
