Synopsis

EMILY, THE NEWEST engine, is determined to prove that she is as Really Useful as Thomas, so she challenges Thomas to a race: whoever can do the job the fastest is the winner. Soon they are off, each on a whirlwind rush around the Island of Sodor. But they both realize that speed is only part of being Really Useful . . . the work must be done right.

About Rev. W. Awdry

Rev. W. Awdry - May the Best Engine Win (Thomas & Friends)
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.
