This beautiful anniversary edition includes twenty-six of the Rev. W. Awdry's classic books in one volume. The stories are brought to life with the original illustrations, beautifully restored and reproduced, and the collection includes a special foreword from the Rev. W. Awdry himself, and an afterword by Brian Sibley. This splendid collection includes some of the most endearing children's books ever written and would make the perfect gift for any Thomas the Tank Engine fan.
