Not Our Favorite Thomas book - a review of "The Special Delivery" Nov 16, 2006
This should be a favorite book. It has nice artwork and features many of our favorite friends: Cranky, Thomas (of course), Gordon, Harold the Helicopter, Toby, Percy, James, troublesome trucks (quantity = 2), Sir Topham Hatt, and Bulstrode (shown in the background)...
... BUT for some reason, it is not that popular with us. We liked "Thomas Goes Fishing" and "Thomas and the School Trip" better.
Three Stars. [C+] Good artwork. Nice Read-aloud. But something is lacking. Perhaps it is that the tone is not as sweet as the other aforementioned books.
What's In That Urgent Package? Apr 21, 2005
"Cranky was unloading a box for Sir Topham Hatt. The box was marked URGENT. `Humpf', creaked Cranky. `What's so urgent about this package?' Thomas heard Cranky's question. "If it says urgent, we should get it to Sir Topham Hatt as fast as we can!' he said. `I'll take it!'" -From the book
An urgent package has arrived at the docks, and the engines want to get it to Sir Topham Hatt as soon as possible! Gordon thinks that an urgent package needs a speedy train, so he takes the package. He hurries down the track, but some rocks had fallen across his path. He was stuck! Toby comes by, and Gordon passes on the package to Toby. Toby passes it along to Percy, who passes it along to the Troublesome Trucks. But then James and the Troublesome Trucks happen upon a broken track! Who will deliver the urgent package to Sir Topham Hatt? What is this mysterious package that has arrived on the Island of Sodor?
Unlike many Thomas the Tank Engine stories, especially the ones geared to older children, there is no taunting or rudeness among the engines. Everyone cooperates and helps each other (including the Troublesome Trucks!).
