Thomas the Tank Engine has been delighting children for over 60 years. He first puffed his way out of the station in a series of hugely popular books, then he appeared on television and even starred in his own movie. Now you can enjoy three more original adventures about the little steam train and his friends, and listen to some songs about him too...

From the best-selling children's railway series, come three more original adventures about the little steam train and his friends and a few more songs to delight the kids. All on one audio CD.

Tank Engine Thomas Again: Thomas is chuffed to have his own branch line - but the Fat Controller keeps an eye on him as usual. Thomas still ends up in trouble, but he also makes some new friends.

Troublesome Engines: Henry meets an elephant and the Fat Controller has to deal with the bigger engines that are getting above themselves. Fortunately, a new engine called Percy comes to the rescue.

Henry the Green Engine: Henry doesn't need to shelter inside tunnels any more when it rains, but he's still a headache for the Fat Controller. It's full steam ahead again with three more fantastic adventures.

This collection contains new vocal readings by Michael Angelis, who sounds not a million miles away from Ringo Starr - so parents won't have a hard time adjusting to a new voice. There are new songs too, sung by children. Some of these are good, some a little poor, but they help add a certain charm.

The fact that it's been over 60 years and Thomas and his rolling stock are still going strong is a credit to the Reverend W. Awdry's excellent writing.
