Abstract:

Six stories featuring Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends. Envious of the children who are fishing in the river near the railroad tracks, Thomas the tank engine finds a way to enjoy the same activity. When Thomas's friend and fellow engine, Duck, has a close shave while trying to stop runaway trucks. Gordon, a very large green engine, is annoyed when his view at the new train station is obstructed. Percy is teased by the other engines when he tells them that the night before, as he thought about the upcoming parade, he saw a giant dragon rumble by. A runaway elephant blocks a tunnel and causes trouble for Henry and his friends. James boasts about his bravery, but when a swarm of bees start buzzing around him he wishes that they would leave him alone.
