Today, Thomas the Train is known as a sweet-faced little choo choo who teaches kids important lessons and looks like a total dynamo while chugging on down the track. But did you know that Tommy has been around for almost a century? This lovable train was created by an Anglican minister named Wilbert Awdry in 1942. Reverend Awdry originally came up with the Thomas the Train stories as a way to entertain his sickly son, but wee Christopher was far from the only child who became a fan of Thomas and his adventures.
The rest, as they say, is history… or is it? You now have the incredible opportunity to own this Personalized Thomas First Edition Book, a reproduction of the original Thomas the Tank story, which brings history and modern times together in the most memorable way. The publisher has preserved the original look of the book, including a light blue, vintage-feel color scheme, beautiful illustrations of Thomas the Tank Engine himself, and classic block text detailing the book title and both the author and illustrator’s names.
Add personalization so everyone knows this book as “especially for so-and-so,” and you have a truly unique surprise for anything who loves Thomas, vintage titles, or children’s books in general — and unlike a true first edition, this reproduction is safe to read at bedtime over and over again, just as it should be.
