Thomas and the Robot


Thomas & Friends


Get ready to be amazed with Thomas as Sodor welcomes the World Technology Fair!

Thomas can't wait to see all the marvellous inventions at the fair! With a flying car, giant robot people and the fastest train in the world, the fair amazes all the people and engines of Sodor. But Thomas is worried he and the other steam engines will not be needed anymore. When thieves arrive at the fair, can Thomas show everyone just how useful a steam engine can be?

A beautifully-illustrated picture book with another action-packed adventure for Thomas and some new friends!

Thomas has been teaching children lessons about life and friendship for 75 years. He ranks alongside other beloved characters such as Paddington Bear, Winnie the Pooh and Peter Rabbit as an essential part of our literary heritage.

 

The Thomas the Tank engines stories were created by the Reverend Wilbert Awdry, who was born in Hampshire in 1911. He grew up close to the railway and was convinced that the steam engines all had different personalities. He used to imagine conversations between them. Later when he was grown up and his son Christopher became ill with measles, Wilbert told stories Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends to entertain him. Christopher asked for more and more stories and Wilbert began writing them down. The first of the Railway Series books was published in 1945, and Awdry wrote 26 Railway books in total before his son, Christopher, took over the series. There have since been multiple, hugely popular, Thomas the Tank Engine TV series and films.
