This small Thomas book contains 3 stories. The first is about Percy's misadventures during a water shortage. He tries to stay clean but ends up the dirtiest he's probably ever been after an accident that involves sweet, gooey chocolate.

The second story is "Salty's Secret" and it tells about how Salty interacts with those troublesome trucks. Hint: "Yo ho ho and a bucket of prawns, the tiller spins and the captain yawns." (Sorry, non-Thomas lovers, but all we mums of Thomas-fanatics know these stories well, don't we!)

The final story relates how Percy and Harold became friends-- though at first it seems as if just the opposite is about to happen as Harold starts to take the mail delivery over from the stranded Percy.

Wrap-Up:::
Personally, we'd advise you to buy Percy's Chocolate Crunch book that includes the Cassette! It is a bit more expensive but it's lovely to be able to play with Thomas and Percy and the rest of the gang while listening to Alec Baldwin tell us all about their adventures.

In any case, this book is Great fun for Percy fans.

Percy, Salty and more!

Buy Percy's Chocolate Crunch with the Cassette! It is a bit more expensive than *just* the book but it is also more fun for kids. My 3-year-old (and his 5 y.o. sister) listens to these over and over while he plays with his buddies.

Narrated by Alec Baldwin (one of the narrators of the television series) Sir Topham Hatt's crew comes alive. The first story is about Percy's misadventures during a water shortage. He tries to stay clean but ends up the dirtiest he's probably ever been. And children just seem to love the idea of Percy's being covered with chocolate. The second story is called Salty's Secret and is about how well Salty relates to those troublesome trucks. Hint: "Yo ho ho and a bucket of prawns, the tiller spins and the captain yawns."

The final story tells how Percy and Harold become friends though at first it seems as if just the opposite is about to happen as Harold starts to take the mail delivery over from the stranded Percy.

This little book with its tape is an excellent way to both increase listening skills and practice `reading' a book. Great fun for Percy fans.
