"Now move out of the way, you mites, I need to get to those trucks"
— Cranky after being rescued

Cranky (later re-titled Thomas and Percy to the Rescue) is the seventh book in the My Thomas Story Library series.


Thomas and Percy are annoyed with a new crane named Cranky who call the little engines "useless little bugs". The big engines stick up for Cranky and one stormy night a ship runs aground straight into the shed trapping the big engines and knocking Cranky over. Thomas and Percy come the rescue and prove that they are not "useless bugs".



  • This book is based on the fifth season episode, Cranky Bugs.
  • This book once came free with a Thomas magazine.
  • Cranky actually tells the Fat Controller that Thomas had moved his trucks onto the line furthest away from him.
  • Henry is absent in the tramp steamer scene unlike the episode that this book is based on.


  • It's daylight when Thomas and Percy come to rescue Cranky.
