Thomas and Friends - Royal Engine | Milkshake! Storytime | Read by Jen

Thomas and Friends - Royal Engine | Milkshake! Storytime | Read by Jen

"The Fat Controller has been invited to London to be given an award by the Queen! Thomas must take him to his destination, but they are faced with many obstacles along the way. They even meet a shiny royal engine named Duchess, who is also in a big hurry! Will Thomas get The Fat Controller to London's Victoria Station on time?"

The Thomas the Tank engines stories were created by the Reverend Wilbert Awdry, who was born in Hampshire in 1911. He grew up close to the railway and was convinced that the steam engines all had different personalities. He used to imagine conversations between them. Later when he was grown up and his son Christopher became ill with measles, Wilbert told stories Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends to entertain him. Christopher asked for more and more stories and Wilbert began writing them down. The first of the Railway Series books was published in 1945, and Awdry wrote 26 Railway books in total before his son, Christopher, took over the series. There have since been multiple, hugely popular, Thomas the Tank Engine TV series and films.

Egmont Publishing is the biggest children’s specialist publisher in the UK, reaching an average of one million children a month. In Autumn 2019, Egmont launched their #statutorystorytime campaign to change the national curriculum to include daily storytime, so that all primary school children benefit from having someone read to them every day. Full information and a link to sign the petition is available on their website.
