Surprise, Surprise! is a rhyming magazine story.
When Thomas crosses the river, he is most surprised to see the water is pink. Later, he takes the Fat Controller to see the strange pink river. When Thomas and the Fat Controller arrive at the bridge, the river is now bright green. From above, Harold can see the problem; there has been a spillage at the Paint Works.
- Harold's floats are not the correct size.
- The magazine states that the river was specific colours, whereas the river appears to be many colours.
