A Crack in the Track (Thomas & Friends)

A Crack in the Track is a Thomas & Friends Book published in 2001. Though debuting in the mid-1980s in the UK and soon making their way to the US, I'm not sure whether the books, toys and cartoons weren't available in Hawaii where I grew up or they just weren't on my parents' radar. In any event, although I'd seen the toys in stores and was familiar with a big lead paint class action lawsuit a few years ago, this was my very first experience with Thomas the Tank Engine. Other than the "crack in the track" line, this is not a rhyming story, although it does seem like a good early ready. The story is full of adventure, teaches cause and effect, as well as problem solving. I also like how it features a number of modes of transportation and a nice color palette. Source: Library Book
