Childhood Idol

Photograph of Christopher Awdry reading a Thomas the Tank Engine book The photo on the left right (click to enlarge) is of Christopher Awdry, writer of the more recent Thomas the Tank Engine books and son of the Reverend Awdry, who started the series. He was at this year’s York Model Railway Show, signing books but also doing half-hourly book readings to children (and their parents).

I used to really like Thomas the Tank Engine as a child – I have most of the books, including at least one signed by Christopher himself, and most of the TV series on video. I was quite humbled to see the man in person.

  1. Um… the photo’s on the right, not the left. ;p
    But, yeah. It’s cool that you got to see him. 😀
