Fred is such a character and reading this book is infectious - I found myself reading the text in a Bolton accent. Recommended reading for everyone, even if not interested in steam engines.

I bought this for my dad for fathers day - he loved it. Its a fab book for any Fred fan! Very easy to read whch is good as my dad does not like reading long books and this he said was great because you can read it in small chunks at a time.

This review was passed onto myself by my dad. We bought it for him for xmas. He said it was wholly enjoyable and a real pleasure to sit down and read.
Was one of the best presents he had.
