New Format!

In this book you get the 3 stories -- Thomas and the Treasure, of course, Duncan's Bluff, and Seeing the Sights -- plus a new format. The pictures, which still come from the television show, are better, and there are now colorful thin frames around some.

If you don't recall the story, in Thomas and the Treasure, Salty tells the story about pirate treasure, and while everyone else rolls their eyes in disbelief, Thomas takes the words to heart and unravels the clues. And in the end, he is rewarded when a real treasure is uncovered.

In Duncan's Bluff, Duncan and James come to loggerheads when Duncan first taunts James, and the feisty red engine counters that he can work harder and be more useful than Duncan ever dreamed of being. Of course, this sets off a competition and when it looks like he is loosing, Duncan cleverly tricks James. But this little slight of track, backfires with unforeseen results. Everything comes out alright in the end however when the narrow gauge controller hears Duncan's confession and Duncan comes to James' rescue.

Finally, in Seeing the Sights, Thomas gets so caught up in trying to compete with the powerful engine, Gordon, that he ends up doing a terrible job showing visitors about the island. This is a stop and smell the roses sort of story. The rose in this case being a delightful day at the beach.

All in all a winner. Though I personally prefer some of the drawn Thomas artwork, this new photo format is very nice and the the stories are good, well written, and the book's bound to please any Steamie lover. (Very few Diesels in this one) ( )
