Busby is a huge fan of anything train related, and we love the original Thomas the Tank Engine stories at Make, Do & Push! HQ, so when we heard that Thomas the Tank Engine was back for a very special story to mark the Queen’s 90th birthday, we couldn’t wait to have a read!
A Visit to London for Thomas the Tank Engine was published on 7th April 2016, and tells of Thomas’ very special journey from the island of Sodor to London. He’s taking the Fat Controller for an exciting meeting, and goes on quite the adventure!
The tale is wonderfully illustrated, and Busby has really enjoyed pointing out all of the iconic London landmarks (with Tower Bridge being a favourite). H-Bear has also enjoyed looking through the book, although it’s a little too old for his concentration levels and he won’t last the whole way through.
I don’t want to ruin the ending, but an important British figure does feature…
It’s a lovely, colourful book, which is an ideal read for any Thomas the Tank Engine fan. A Visit to London for Thomas the Tank Engine retails at £6.99, and has quickly become a bedtime favourite in our house.
