Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with Thomas & Friends in this all-new Thomas & The Leprechaun storybook--plus stickers!
Train-loving boys and girls ages 4 to 7 will be thrilled to read how Thomas the Tank Engine meets a leprechaun and saves St. Patrick's Day! This beautifully-illustrated paperback includes more than 50 bonus stickers!
In the early 1940s, a loving father crafted a small blue wooden train engine for his son, Christopher. The stories that this father, the Reverend W Awdry, made up to accompany the wonderful toy were first published in 1945 and became the basis for the Railway Series, a collection of books about Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends--and the rest is history. Thomas & Friends characters are now a big extended family of engines and others on the Island of Sodor. They appear not only in books but also in television shows and movies, and as a wide variety of beautifully made toys. The adventures of Thomas and his friends, which are always, ultimately, about friendship, have delighted generations of train-loving boys and girls for more than 75 years and will continue to do so for generations to come.
