Sam and the Great Bell is a book that came with the Wooden Railway set of the same name and in a special book pack.
A new museum is opening soon, and a new bell is needed for the building. Sam is called to the Island of Sodor for the preparations. Then Percy falls into a ditch, and Sam is called to the rescue. Then, when Rocky cannot lift the bell, Sam helps. As a reward, Sir Topham Hatt tells Sam to take the first group of people into the museum.
