Chocolate Thomas the Tank Engine – level 3

26-04-2017 07:00

To celebrate Easter, a 140-kilogramme chocolate Thomas the Tank Engine arrived at King’s Cross Station in London. Master chocolatiers created the giant sculpture, and it took them 250 hours to craft the exact replica of the blue engine.

Thomas delighted children and adults when they saw him. A ‘Fat Controller’ also came to give out chocolate eggs to everyone.

Difficult words: craft (make by hand), replica (an exact copy), delight (make happy), Fat Controller (the title for the person in charge of the railway in the ‘Thomas the Tank Engine’ books).
