ABOUT THIS BOOK

Boys and girls who love Thomas & Friends will have trainloads of creative fun as they use the four big chunky crayons included with this coloring book to color images of Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends. Fans of Thomas & Friends ages 3 to 7 will giggle at the mishaps and adventures of the Number 1 little blue engine and his pals as they try their best to buffer giant balloons to a festival on the Island of Sodor.

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY

In the early 1940s, a loving father crafted a small blue wooden engine for his son, Christopher. The stories that this father, 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 the age of 85.

Jim Durk, illustrator of several beloved children's books series ranging from Thomas & Friends and The Powerpuff Girls to Clifford the Big Red Dog and The Rugrats, graduated from Ohio University with a BFA in illustration/painting in 1983. His works include Bear’s House, Brave Little Engines, and Call of the Wild. He is the founder of Durk Illustration, and he lives and works in Cleveland, Ohio.
