Such a wonderful Thomas and Friends book! Such life lessons within the story without being in the child's face about them! In this one the child learns that you should always help a friend that you see being stand offish; they maybe shy but they may also be scared and if you are a friend to them they can overcome that sacredness. And also children learn not to spread stories that they overheard because they may not get the full story or the story may not be true!

Normally I hate Thomas books for being too wordy. This one was the exception. Based off the Thomas movie "The Blue Mountain Mystery", we learn the true story of a young Narrow Gauge engine named Luke (which my son has at home, but I'd never heard of him before) and how he believes he is responsible for the yellow engine's fate. As Thomas investigates, he learns the truth and goes to help his new friend Luke from Diesel's treachery. Recommended for ages 3-7, 4 stars.

I'm very glad to see that an Awdry was involved in the writing of this book; I think it helps to maintain the integrity of the story. This story, however, is rather like a xerox copy of an original. On its own it is not bad and might even pass for good, but if you compare it to the original stories, it is easy to see how the quality suffers.
