Review: Tenders And Turntables & Trouble In The Shed

Tenders And Turntables & Trouble In The Shed by Wilbert Awdry
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I dunno. Maybe it’s a British thing, but I gotta say that even for a kid’s book, Thomas & Friends is really bloody dull. Maybe I’m too old to grasp what elementary concept they’re trying to teach, but it just seems that most of the characters are jerks, except for Thomas and his BFFs, of course.

The artwork is very intriguing, and there is a surreality to some parts of the stories that I liked. Not something I’d recommend. Of course, the TV show was just as surreal and rather dark most of the time, even with George Carlin and Ringo in the roundhouse.
