The Cranky Day is a book published by Random House in 2000. It features three stories based on episodes from the fifth season. Its cover changed in 2008 and comes with a CD or audio cassette.




  • This is the first televised children's book to have 3 chapters.
  • An audio cassette was also included with narration by Alec Baldwin, the narration was later rereleased on CD.


  • The 2000 cover features a photo from Thomas and Stepney, but that story is not in the book. The alternative cover also shows a photo from Horrid Lorry which isn't in the book either.
