James and the Queen of Sodor is a book that was illustrated by using photographs from the television series.
James brags to the other engines about how shiny and clean he is, in order to teach him a lesson, Gordon decided to trick James into taking the Queen of Sodor, a leaky old barge, to the smelter's yard. But James returns to the sheds spotless until Percy blows his clogged whistle that is covered in quarry dust and ruins James' paintwork.
