Hop on board with Thomas as he learns the importance of listening to others in this lionhearted collection of tales from the tracks.

The Lion of Sodor
Thomas and the Pigs
Time for a Story

    I picked up "Splish Splash Splosh!" cheap at the Boxing Day sales and I already had "Merry Winter Wish" so I'll be looking for this next week to complete the set, at least for now...
