Editorial Reviews:
This special collector's edition features nine favorite stories where Percy's spunk and determination lead him into all sorts of humorous situations. With classic storytelling by George Carlin and Ringo Starr. This commemorative video honoring Percy includes these nine terrific tales:

The Ghostly Trip - Percy delights in scary stories and is disappointed when Thomas and the others tell him they are not true. When an accidental bump coats him with a freight full of white powdery lime, he decides to play a ghostly prank on his pal Thomas.
A Scarf for Percy - It is the coldest winter day and Percy wishes for a scarf to keep warm. After an argument with James, he steams into the station, crashing into a load of cartons. This time he really gets into a jam - literally. And the scarf he ends up with turns out to be Sir Topham Hatt's trousers!
Percy Takes a Plunge - Percy insists on testing the limits. He ignores a warning sign and decides to ask the rail cars to help him play a trick on Thomas and the others. But instead of proving his point, he finds himself testing the waters.
Percy's Predicament - Percy annoys the rail cars by ordering them around. The cars won't allow him to brake at the station and he finds himself stuck.
Thomas, Percy and the Mail Train - The mail is delayed by weather and Percy wants to make up time on the next run. Harold the Helicopter brags that he can deliver mail more swiftly, but Percy delivers on time.
Percy Runs Away - The little green engine is shunting cars on the main line and not heeding the others' warning that he should whistle to the signal man. When Gordon comes steaming toward him with the express train, Percy backs up and can't stop.
Percy and the Signal - Again, Percy's tricks get him into trouble. He pretends to know what all the signals mean, but when he comes up to an unfamiliar sign, he ends up going in the wrong direction.
Percy Proves a Point - to Harold in this episode. The haughty helicopter calls Percy slow and old-fashioned, but the little green engine proves his power in a thrilling race.
Percy's Promise - is to bring a group of children home from the beach on time. It's summer on the island of Sodor, but a spell of bad weather almost prevents their return. Though the trip has its wet spots, Percy brings the children back safely, prompting Sir Topham Hatt to dub him a "Really Useful Engine."
Children love stories told by engaging storytellers, the winning formula of Thomas and Friends tales about a group of toy trains on the island of Sodor, based on the "Railway Series" by Reverend W. Awdry. Preschool fans from around the world, a loyal bunch that can identify with the spunky and mischievous tank engine bearing a green number six, selected this best-of compilation of favorite Percy episodes. There are nine short stories here, narrated by George Carlin and Ringo Starr, which focus on a dilemma and end with a gentle moral message. Percy is usually in a predicament because of cheeky behavior, such as in "Percy Takes a Plunge," where he finds himself in a water hole, or worse still, covered in sticky goop in "A Scarf for Percy." And who can forget "Percy's Ghostly Trick" when, after telling some chilling ghost stories, Percy hits a cart of limestone and the dust turns him ghostly white, giving his friends a fright. Though Percy delivers mail, transports children, and helps other engines, he always finds time for practical jokes and ensuing misadventures. There are moments of bravery and bravado, heroism and humiliation tucked between plenty of mishaps. Preschool kids can relate to Percy's predicaments and his earnest desire to be useful and appreciated. They'll walk away with valuable lessons on friendship, resourcefulness, and forgiveness. And train fanatics, young and old, will find plenty to enjoy with a bounty of railway terms and realistic train miniatures. (Ages 2 to 6 years old) --Lynn Gibson
