Synopsis

Synopsis

Vicarstown Iis a big town with a big station and all the local children who love Thomas have arranged a Valentine’s Day party for all the engines. Percy is very excited, but when a big blizzard hits Sodor, will they still have the party?

This simple story highlights customs and traditions of a popular holiday saluting friendship, and deals with issues that children experience all year round, not just on February 14th.
Rev. W. Awdry

About Rev. W. Awdry

Rev. W. Awdry - Thomas in Town: Valentine's Day in Vicarstown (Thomas & Friends)
One of the most celebrated children's authors of the twentieth century, the Reverend Wilbert Vere Awdry O.B.E. was born in 1911 in Hampshire, England. His interest in railways began as a child when, living in Wiltshire, England, he found himself within sight and sound of the Great Western Railway line between Paddington and Bristol. Wilbert used to lie in bed at night, listening to the trains and imagining that the engines were talking to each other. He invented characters for them all.
Ordained in 1936, Wilbert Awdry served in a number of parishes for nearly thirty years until the popularity of the Railway Series enabled him to go into "private practice" and concentrate on his writing and research.
In 1972, Tramway Engines became the twenty-sixth and last book in the series to bear the credit, The Rev. W. Awdry. The "Puff-Puff Parson," as he was affectionately known, had gone into semi-retirement. He continued, nevertheless, to make regular public appearances for many years to come as well as attending to the voluminous correspondence he received from Thomas fans the world over.
After a period of prolonged illness, Wilbert Awdry died peacefully on March 21, 1997, aged 85, at his home in Gloucestershire, England.
