About Rev. W. Awdry
In the early 1940s, a loving father crafted a small, blue, wooden engine for his son, Christopher. The stories that this father, THE REVEREND W. AWDRY, made up to accompany this wonderful toy were first published in 1945. He continued to create new adventures and characters until 1972 when he retired from writing. Reverend Awdry died in 1997 at age 85.
Jordan Linfield and Joseph Krevisky have collaborated on several best-selling books, including Words of Life. Both have had leading editorial positions at major publishing houses in addition to long-standing careers as educators in New York City.
