Illustrations are dull, grainy, stills from the TV series. There are better products on the market. Avoid!

I bought this for my two and half year old Thomas crazy son and he loves it.

However, I've never seen a book so poorly produced. Its overall appearance is flimsy. The cover is too small, the pages look like they won't withstand little fingers for long; and the quality of the actual printing of the texts and images is so poor they could have been printed on a cheap home printer.

Designed to be read to a child (2-year old for example). Not as colourful, sturdy and interactive like other Thomas's books, but still a good product.

To be honest, on ordering this along with 2 other
Thomas books, the other two are better in that they are the board books and I expected this one to be so was a bit disappointed that it wasn't.

That said I've decided to keep it anyway and will use it to read to LO until he's a bit older to not risk ripping the pages.

I have seen the other ABC Thomas book, and a reviewer on here put me off as xmas for letter x, but on seeing the same book at a playarea for my toddler that I take him to regularly.. it's actually better than this one and xmas is no big deal anyway, it still shows the letter X. It's more colourful and sturdier than this one too. I'd recommend that other one to buyers over this one.

Got this for my son for his birthday as he loves looking at books. Some words in it are hard for him to say because quite complicatd for his age and it is quite a plain book overall.

This activity book is so thin. The pictures are very shadowed and the colours are not clear. My child didn't like it at all though it was Thomas - his favourite character.

Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends from the Island of Sodor introduce ABC's to children. An excellent picture book that is perfect for pre-readers. A must have for any young Thomas fan! Purchase two as it is destined to become "well-loved".

I support a child with Autism at school.

I have lost count the amount of times I have read this book to my student at school. Books which have a Thomas theme catches his attention and can also have a calming effect on him when he may be feeling upset.

I would recommend this.
