The 'official' name for these books is the Thomas the Tank Engine Centenary Library set - I'm not sure where the centenary bit comes into play because Thomas isn't 100 years old (yet) and there aren't 100 books in the collection...most confusing!
The Thomas stories were actually first published in 1946 (if there's anything Thomas you want to know, you can just call on me - I am the font of all Thomas knowledge!) and the books in this Thomas the Tank Engine are copies of those original versions.
I don't know anyone who doesn't love the little blue engine - he's cheeky, he's funny, the other characters are all so identifiable and everyone has their favourites and their 'baddies'. Whilst I loved Thomas, Percy was always my most favourite - he was just a little less 'perfect' than Thomas.
