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.
The order was late and they had given a week delivery slot which is pretty bad. The book arrived with a dog eared corner and a crease down the spine. It’s a flimsy quality that will tear easily along the spine if bent the wrong way. I have bought this for a 1 year old first birthday and I don’t know if they will be able to play with it. Please trust the reviews and stay away!! The products are overpriced and poor quality. I don’t usually leave reviews but felt the need to on here.

Grandson's football book!
I bought the football book for my Grandson. Despite being under three and therefore not yet able to read he has enjoyed the pictures and having the story read to him with his name.
