So there we were, innocently reading the Thomas the Tank Engine book, "Thomas's party". Now look closely at this picture and tell me, does this look like the type of party that should be in a children's book? I mean, what IS the man in the orange pants up to? Why is the driver smiling so naughtily? And where does the feather duster fit in all this?! I ask you! In a children's book for goodness sakes!
