Thomas and the New Carousel is a musical activity book.
Sir Topham Hatt asks Thomas to go to the docks to pick up something very important: a new carousel for the Sodor summer festival. Thomas is so excited that he leaves the docks with the carousel before the chains are secured. He arrives late at the festival, and discovers that one of the crates has fallen off without him noticing.
Thomas tries to retrace his tracks alone, but then realises it will be faster if he gets his friends to help. Harold finds the lost crate stuck under a bridge. Thomas figures out how he and his friends can rescue the crate as a team. Thomas delivers the crate to the festival, and the workers finish assembling the carousel.
Sir Topham Hatt is proud of Thomas for learning from his mistakes, and Thomas thanks his friends for their help. They are all really useful engines.
This books features a number of classic Thomas songs including:
