About the Author

In the early 1940s, a loving father crafted a small blue wooden engine for his son, Christopher. The stories that this father, Reverend W. Awdry, made up to accompany this wonderful toy were first published in 1945. He continued to create new adventures and characters until 1972, when he retired from writing. Reverend Awdry died in 1997 at the age of 85.

Thomas Lapadula is an illustrator known for books in the Thomas the Tank Engine series, True-Life Treasure Hunts, The Truck Book, and many more.
