Thomas and the Runaway Pumpkins (Thomas & Friends)
ABOUT THOMAS AND THE RUNAWAY PUMPKINS (THOMAS & FRIENDS)
A new Thomas & Friends(TM) Little Golden Book autumn adventure!
In this all-new Thomas & Friends(TM) Little Golden Book, the fall pumpkin crop on the Island of Sodor goes missing! Train-loving boys and girls ages 4 to 7 will wonder: How will the Pumpkin Festival go on without them? With nothing to judge, what will happen to the pumpkin-carving contest? But never fear�Thomas the Tank Engine is here to help his friends Percy, Edward, Emily, and Henry get the festivities back on track! It�s the perfect way to celebrate the fall season and Halloween!
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 now make up 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 70 years and will continue to do so for generations to come.
