Edward’s new coat of paint 

Inspired by the Rev W Awdry

It was a quiet day in Sodor and Edward was minding his own business. Thomas puffed up beside him panting with exertion.
“Quick, move!” He shouted. “There are reports of a giant on the loose.”

“A giant” snorted Edward. “Don’t be silly, Thomas, they don’t exist!”

“Suit yourself” said Thomas. “But don’t say I didn’t warn you.” And chuffed quickly down the track.

Five minutes later, Edward wished he had taken Thomas’ advice as an enormous toddler ran towards him wielding an equally large paint brush.

“Paint” squealed the toddler, known as Wilfred. “Paint!”

And before Edward knew it, he was covered from head to toe in multicoloured poster paint.

 


“Oh no!” Wailed Edward. “My beautiful blue paint”

 Luckily another giant, this one much older, followed behind Wilfred and rescued Edward. She took him to the train wash and he came out good as new.

“Now you can be a really useful, blue, engine again” she said.


The end
