Gordon's Trouble with Mud, retitled Gordon in Trouble in some versions, is a book illustrated using photographs from the television series.
Gordon learns that having a washdown is essential to every engine.
- This book is based on the third season episode, The Trouble with Mud.
- The image on the 2007 cover is mirrored.
- The original cover features a photo from Tender Engines.
- On the last page, James asked, "Please Sir, can Gordon pull coaches again?" and the Fat Controller replied "Only if you wash Gordon". It's obvious the comma between "wash" and "Gordon" is missing.
