Too Scary!

Call me Downer Debbie, but this looks frightening. The back cover reads "Boo!!! Have you ever had somethingscare you? On the Island of Sodor, even the bravest of engines sometimes get scared. Why take Percy - - he said that he's not scared of anything. What do you think? Help Thomas use the carnival Chinese Dragon to play a little joke on Percy."

Considering the average age of a Thomas fan is about 3, I am wondering if this bloody train scene is really what Rev. W. Awdry had in mind when he created Thomas. I will give them props for incorporating some Chinese culture into this rather traditional show, but does this dragon result in a blood bath?

Check it out at the Barrett Memorial library.
