The Flying Kipper and Henry the Green Engine is a pop-up book written by the Reverend W. Awdry and illustrated by Clive Spong.


Henry takes The Flying Kipper for the first time, but ice and snow cause trouble for him making him come off the rails. After being rescued, Henry is sent to Crewe to have a new shape and a larger firebox.




  • This book is based on The Railway Series story, The Flying Kipper.
  • Henry does not collide with a parked goods train in this story as he did in the original. Instead, the icy rails cause him to derail.


  • Throughout the book, Henry's tender has only four wheels.
  • In the first illustration, Henry's number is on the side of his cab, rather than the side of his tender.
