Reviews - What do customers think about Edward's Exploit and Other Thomas the Tank Engine Stories (Thomas & Friends) (Pictureback(R))?

Get the earlier stories instead  Jun 15, 2005
Our two year old is a HUGE Thomas fan and also loves to read. About six months ago, we picked up three Thomas paperbacks at a used book store. They are the earlier ones, written a few years before these stories. The books we bought were exciting, well written, taught lessons and captivated my son completely. We thought it would be a great idea to get some more Thomas books.
The collection of stories in "Edward's Exploit" are LAME. I'm sorry to say it, but it's true. The stories barely make sense. The writing and grammar are poor. The story lines (when comprehensible) are boring and occasionly use innapropriate language. The pictures are alright to look at, but my son quickly loses interest in the stories and asks to read "Terence" or "Thomas fish" instead. I strongly recommend the story books "A Cow on the Line", "Thomas in Trouble", and "Thomas gets Tricked" instead of these newer books. I am most likely headed to the used toy store with "Edward's Exploit" and "James in a Mess". Don't waste your money!
RUDE & AGGRESSIVE  Nov 9, 2004
The number of times "Shut Up" appears in these stories is shocking!! We have never seen the series but we have a cute Scholastic Thomas book and when our son received a Thomas Train Set I picked up a couple more books from the library. My husband and I were VERY disapointed with the language and the aggressive nature of all the characters (trains & people). Trains hitting each other and saying "there's more coming should you misbehave." Threatening to send trains away for being "clumsy." Of course our son loves the books because he loves trains but we don't want him learning anything these books have to teach.
Rude Beginnings  Aug 3, 2003
This book has several words in which I feel are not appropriate for a child's ear/story. Many of the characters are angry and show resentment. Would not advise buying for someone else's child.
Good kid's story  Nov 19, 2001
This being the first "Thomas the Tank Engine" book I've ever read. I recognized some stories as word-for-word narrations from "Thomas" videos, but since I haven't seen ALL of the video or TV stories, some stories were new to me. My sons are big Thomas fans, so I know they'll love these books when they get them for Christmas!
Good story book  Aug 18, 2000
This is a good Thomas story book. There is a TV series about Thomas. Then there are vediotapes about Thomas and there are a whole lot toys about Thomas. Children like them all. When I bought this book, ha, my three young ones fought for it. And I had to read to them one by one in turn. And I have other Thomas book too. They just can get enough of Thomas.
