Thomas and the Naughty Trick is a book illustrated using photographs from the television series.
Thomas plays a trick on Rheneas by whistling beside him, making the little engine knock the pilings off of his trucks. The other engines want to join in the fun too and surprise Rusty, Sir Handel, and Peter Sam. When Mr. Percival finds that none of Thomas' trucks have been loaded, he is furious.
- Peter Sam is wearing one of Duncan's face masks in the final picture.
- The front cover shows a scene from Thomas and the Lighthouse, but that story is not featured in the book.
