James was introduced in the second book of "The Railway Series", but we get to know him a little better in this one. Thomas, Edward, Henry, Gordon, Annie & Clarabel are back, as is Sir Topham Hatt (who was called The Fat Director in No. 1 and No. 2, and now goes by The Fat Controller, as is explained in the forward: "Dear Friends of Edward, Gordon, Henry and Thomas, Thank you for your kind letters; here is the new book for which you asked. James, who crashed into the story of Thomas, the Tank Engine, settles down and becomes a useful engine. We are nationalised now, but the same engines still work the Region. I am glad, too, to tell you that the Fat Director, who understands our friends' ways, is still in charge, but is now the Fat Controller. I hope you will enjoy this book too. The Author" There are four stories within the book (James and the Top-Hat / James and the Boot-lace / Troublesome Trucks / James and the Express), and we love the old-fashioned feel of these books, and their small size (@ 4 1/2"h x 5 3/4"w), which is perfect for smaller hands. It was first published in 1948, and this edition was published in 2007. Our older grandson was about 2 1/2 when he became completely infatuated with Thomas, which led Grandpa and I to beginning our first collections for him... trains, annuals, but - first and foremost - The Railway Series!

I really enjoy this neat old series of 42 books; the first 26 written by the Rev. W. Awdry, with the remaining 16 written by his son, Christopher (for whom the books were begun in the first place!) Our older grandson (almost 6 now) still enjoys his collections, but his younger brother (closing in on 2) is already showing strong interest - with another grandchild due in September, the Thomas collections have been a great investment for us.

Read no further if you're not looking to start a collection, but if you think you'd like to, let me save you the trouble of looking up all of the titles. I'll list them in the "comments" below.
My 2 1/2 yr old Thomas loving son loves this book, and honestly, it is my favorite one to read. It abbreviates the movie just perfectly enough for a nice bedtime (or anytime) story, and I am a huge fan of the large board book. We have given it to several friends with an accompanying engine from the story (usually Bash or Dash). Really recommend it, and wish that they make more Big Board Books for the Thomas stories.
We have enjoyed reading these 4 stories several times. My 3 year old follows and remembers the stories. I like that the stories follow a sort of progression. Book is made of surdy, good quality materials.
Freaky Hook
It's a rehash of the other Misty Island Rescue golden books, so if you have one, you have them all. My little girl wanted it for her birthday, and was thrilled to get it, so while I personally don't find the book thrilling, she does.
This is a book of opposites and for a Thomas fanatic it serves its purpose well. All he wants to read is Thomas so find this a useful way to teach him opposites.
Update: After I left the review (below), seller contacted me by email and apologized for the book not matching the description. It was an honest mistake, and he/she offered to let me send the book back for a full refund. I didn't because it's a good book, and my son likes it. I very much appreciated the seller reaching out to me. She stated that she will be fixing the listing so that it will be accurate for future shoppers.

i was very disappointed when I received this book. It states that it is the "Face Board Book Series". That's not true. It is from a different series, which means it's a totally different book than described. The Face Series books are like the ones pictured in this listing. They have giant 3D faces that make sounds when touched. I was trying to replace a special book (like the one pictured and described) that I have had since 2010. Sure, the listing days that the cover may not be the same. An updated cover would've been okay. This wasn't an updated cover. It is a completely different book series and a totally different story inside. It is not an updated version of the Face Board Book Series as described. The book I received is okay, but I could've gotten it for $5-6 with free shipping. Because of the inaccurate description, series listing, and photo in this listing, I gladly paid extra for the book and even paid shipping costs when I am a Prime customer. I never pay shipping, but I was happy to in this case to get such a sought-after replacement to my little boy's old book. Needless to say, I was bummed when I opened the package to see a totally different book. It's a good book, but it wasn't what I was looking for.
I bought this book for a four year-old grandson who's been in love with Thomas and Friends since he was old enough to walk. Since then he's briefly been interested in other characters, like those in the movie "Cars," but he always comes back to his first love--Thomas. This book is delightful reading for child and adult, simply because it was the very first in what has become a mega-empire in later years. The illustrations reflect the time in which the stories first began; they are simple and honest, without the "spit and polish" of later years. There is something very special in knowing that this collection of stories was actually the beginning of Thomas the Tank Engine.
