amazon.co.uk have divulged that five new books will appear for Britain later in the year of 2012.

At least three of them are standalone titles whilst the last two link in with the Blue Mountain Mystery feature-length special.

A modern TV Series story collection come in just one release with Thomas' Favourite Tales and will run at 152 pages long.
The description reads; This title helps you to learn all about Thomas & the Steam Team in this treasury of stories! This collection features six splendid stories featuring Thomas and the unbeatable Steam Team!

It lets you journey through the Island of Sodor with these wonderfully vivid tales of Thomas, Edward, Percy, and other favourite engines.

From dangerous floods to exciting rescues, these specially selected stories are sure to be Really Useful for playtime and bedtime. 

Based on the Thirteenth Season Snow Tracks episode, Snowy Tracks brings the story to book form adding up to 24 pages for reading pleasure.
This is the perfect stocking filler for Thomas fans! The Island of Sodor is covered in a thick blanket of snow and the engines have been told to be careful and not to go over any big hills.

Gordon doesn't listen, he's sure that he'll be strong enough to steam over every hill he comes to. But it isn't long before Gordon finds out that snow is much more dangerous than it looks. 

As a board book, Totally Thomas! is also to come as an activity read featuring some puzzles and other fun of 20 pages worth.
This is an enormous fold-out book packed with stories, puzzles and games! "Totally Thomas!" is more than just a story book.

Push any of your own toy trains along the enormous pull-out play mat, race around the Island of Sodor with the Big Race game, get busy with all the puzzles and activities and then settle down to read the exciting story 

Revealing further plot details to the 2012 Autumn film is the Blue Mountain Mystery: The Movie Storybook due to be published in a similar fashion to the Day of the Diesels version, clocking up 32 pages.
Thomas' new friend has a dark secret...Discover the Blue Mountain Quarry...and a new engine, Luke, in this movie storybook, the perfect accompaniment to the 2012 movie release.

When Luke is discovered hiding in the Quarry, Thomas cannot understand why he is so shy, and why some of the other engines don't trust him - until Luke reveals a dark secret!

But there's another engine on Sodor who knows Luke's secret ...and wants to reassure the little engine that he has nothing to hide. 

Finally comes the 36 page Blue Mountain Mystery: Sticker Activity Book which may also compare to the 2011 Diesels tie-in.
This title helps you to recreate your favourite scenes from "Blue Mountain Mystery", the new action-packed movie starring Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends on Sodor!
