Description

UK:

Thomas & Friends are back with over 55 minutes of non-stop new stories and fun on the beautiful Island of Sodor. Brand new to DVD, It's Great to be an Engine includes 7 exciting stories plus interactive sections such as 'Dot to Dot', 'Henry Huffs Out Of The Station' and a new song to sing along to!

US:

Magic carpets, rip-roaring races, snow, sleet, wind, and trainloads of ice cream! Every season on the Island of Sodor brings new opportunities for adventure and discovery. And that means there is never a dull moment for Thomas and all the engines on Sir Topham Hatt's Railway. Will Emily get the timber to Farmer McColl in time to save the baby calves? Will Toby muster enough confidence to push Gordon up a hill? And will James learn that it's better to be useful than to be important? Watch and find out. Share in these timeless stories featuring seven of the Island's classic characters, and you'll see why it's true that It's Great To Be An Engine!
