Thomas Gets a Snowplow (Thomas & Friends) (Pictureback(R)) (Paperback)
Winter is coming and Thomas, being a small engine, needs to put on his snowplow. Thomas hates his snowplow; he thinks it makes him look funny, and when he has it on, the other, bigger engines tease him. But Thomas saves the day when a big storm comes up and Toby is stuck on his branch line.
The Reverend W Awdry crafted a small wooden Thomas engine for his son, Christopher in the early 1940s. His made-up stories were first published in Great Britian in 1945. The Reverend continued to create new adventures and characters until 1972 when he retired from writing.
