Description

Chuff Chuff, Peep Peep! - All Aboard for the ten all-time favourite Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends stories. Special friends of Thomas of all ages and from all around the country were asked to select their very own favourite adventures. This video features the ten most popular stories, specially introduced by the children themselves. Join Thomas, Percy, Gordon, Duck, Henry, Peter Sam, Terence, Edward, Donald and Douglas, and of course, The Fat Controller in these stories you will enjoy watching again and again.

The Fat Controller's Letter

My Dear Friends
News has reached me here on the Island of Sodor that some of Thomas' many friends have chosen their favourite adventures from the Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends film stories and included them on one special video cassette. After speaking to our colleagues on the mainland I was pleased to confim that this was indeed the case. Christopher introduces the tale of Thomas and the Missing Christmas Tree, Hannah chooses Down the Mine, and Jonathan's favourite is The Sad Story of Henry.

Later, young Jake describes how Terence "tugged and slipped and slipped and tugged" to pull Thomas from the snow during a particularly cold winter and Mark remembers vividly an unfortunate encounter between my treasured top hat and a very hungry goat - an event I really would prefer to forget! And Declan, Abby, Julian, Billy, and James all have a favourite too.

I understand too that the cassette concludes with a splendid finale - a video song! All my engines enjoy a rousing tune, especially when they are working hard, and I am sure you will share their pleasure singing along. In fact, I can hear Thomas and Percy practising now.

On that note, I must depart for the shed and ask those two naughty engines to make less noise. Everyone has a busy day ahead of them tomorrow and I cannot allow my engines to have a sleepless night!

Thomas joins me in sending his warmest wishes to all his friends.
