Chocolate Thomas the Tank Engine – level 2

26-04-2017 07:00

In England, master chocolatiers created a giant chocolate Thomas the Tank Engine to celebrate Easter. It took them 250 hours to make the 140-kilogramme replica of the famous blue engine.

Thomas came to King’s Cross Station in London and children and adults were happy to see him. A ‘Fat Controller’ also came to give out chocolate eggs.

Difficult words: chocolatier (a person who creates or sells chocolate), replica (something that is a copy), Fat Controller (the title for the person who runs the railway in the ‘Thomas the Tank Engine’ books).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
