Overall this is a great little book. The design and wheels provide something different, and it's really cute to look at standing on the shelf. The story is okay - with Thomas and the bus racing each other. My two year old son LOVES Thomas, and gets very concerned when he looks tired with rosy cheeks on some of the pages. Although the book's physical design is refreshing and different, my son wasn't very interested in playing with the wheels and the button clasp that keeps the book closed is VERY difficult to open. This means that he won't look through this book on his own like he does with all of his other Thomas books. Other than that, it's great.

Good quality and I love the concept of the train that's a book and a book that's a train. However, the story and pictures are not as compelling as I'd like. Not one of my favorite books to read. That said my son at least like to wheel it around.
Four stars because the size is.... tiny! Although it's a cute book with wheels that do roll and the story is nice, I can't get over how small it is. May be I should have paid more attention to the dimensions. My toddlers seemed to like it and tried rolling it on the floor and once I un-buttoned the book (it's hard for them to do so themselves), they flipped through the pages of the book as well.
If your kid likes Thomas, he/she will probably enjoy this. Mine likes it when I roll it back and forth in between reading the pages and making some Thomas character voices.
The book is good for a child under 3 years old. The book feels a little cheap which is why I gave it 4 stars. Other than that I recommend it.
If you have a Thomas lover, or a little one just starting to get into Thomas this is a great little book to start with. We had the wooden railway Thomas train and my son was taking it to bed for about a week so I decided to buy a Thomas book to read at bed time. Within a week of the book we also had a Bertie the bus toy to hold too, now they are best buddies and do all the things together (Thomas and Bertie) Percy has been left in the dust.
The wheels actually work and it's a book. I only wish it were bigger. LO loves it, because he sometimes 'races' it like a train and then he opens it and 'reads' (looks at the images) it
We brought this on my son's first plane flight to be a "surprise" toy that would keep him occupied. It worked!!! This book is the perfect size for a carry-on, 7 inches wide and 3.5 inches tall. The wheels spin and that alone kept my toddler busy. He wanted to hear it over, and over, and over. Big, big success.
