Thomas and Friends: ‘You’ and the Christmas Rescue

Boys and girls can feature in their very own Christmas adventure with Thomas the Tank Engine. Father Christmas is on his way to Sodor when a snowstorm causes trouble on the journey. The child will feature in the story in the form of an avatar, created from details such as their hair and eye colour, and join everyone’s favourite Really Useful Engine on a mission to save Christmas.


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.
