The first book released in The Railway Series
Presented in a free gift box
A rare and collectable treasure, the three railway engines first edition has been re-released as this premium book. As the first book ever released from The Railway Series by Rev. W. Awdry, the book introduces Edward, Gordon, Henry and their life on the railway. Grownups will know everybody’s favourite little blue tank doesn’t make an appearance in this edition, but as the first book of the Railway Series, it’s a must-have to start off anyone’s collection.
As a special, personalised edition, the book itself features the individual’s name on the cover and written along the top of each page. Every time the recipient reads the story, they’ll be filled with pride at seeing their name featured throughout. Including a special <strong>Message</strong> on the title page, the book features C. Reginald Dalby’s original illustrations, remastered in this collector’s edition.
How to Personalise The Three Railway Engines First Edition
Personalise with any name up to 12 characters, and a personal message of two lines, up to 40 characters per line. Check your personalisation: accents and other symbols cannot be used unless otherwise stated.
Love love love this gift! I gave it to my 2 year old baby niece as her birthday present and she loves it! Yes it's a bit pricey but the memories it'll bring reading to her are priceless. So well worth it I'd say.

Honey and the perfect pet dinosaur
My granddaughter loved the story and she has learned lots of information about dinosaurs. She loved seeing her name in print.

Lovely idea but the book is very small…
Lovely idea but the book is very small and thin. Thankfully Groupon sold it as a steal!!!..
Won’t be buying this again. I had to buy several other items, for a child’s 2nd birthday, just so I wasn’t embarrassed.

Disney Princesses tales of bravery…
The font size was not very good for a young child to read, it was too 'fussy',.
Also the child's name was not mentioned enough.
