Dear Friends,

This is the author again and this time i had to take a break from the books for the past 2 weeks and i am back and now i had some dark stories that were contained from the television series again like Britt and David did back in 1998, and now i had feature stories that wee seen Toby get in a dangerous position of a dam breaking up, and Percy who had been getting into a predicament again in the mines, and more wee see muddles all around Sodor and see the engines cause confusion and delay because of George the Steamroller and we will see Oliver make an amazing find on a closed down branch line when he was taking the mail and from your good friend letting you read this book i will like to wish me a good luck.


Signed, Percy
