Thomas and Friends: ‘You’ and the Birthday Surprise

Boys and girls can star in their own birthday adventure featuring everyone’s favourite Really Useful Engine. The child will feature in the story in the form of an avatar, created from details such as their hair and eye colour, and take a magical ride on Thomas the Tank Engine, all around the Island of Sodor.


Let's personalise this book!

Enter the child’s name and the name of a friend you would like to star in the book with them. This could be Mummy, Daddy, a family member, best friend, or even their teddy!

Create an avatar

Now you can create the avatar. The avatar is a likeness of the person that you are making the book for. It will feature throughout the book and on the cover.

The example spread below shows how this information is used.

Finally, it was time for the cake – which looked just like Thomas! It was the best birthday cake {name} had ever had.

The Fat Controller brought it carefully through to where everyone was sitting, and he sang ‘Happy Birthday’.

Everyone joined in and, after they had finished singing, they all agreed it had been a brilliant birthday party!
