The UK version may have slight spelling differences from the US version though. They may have what's called an "Anglicized" version of the book. (i.e. An "apartment" is called a "flat", a "truck" is called a "lorry", "tire" is spelt "tyre", etc.)

Lorry! LOL!  ::) ;D

Most of mine comes from growing up with BBC shows and experiencing its influence- and mainly from reading Enid Blyton books. :) 8)

The book series is written by an Anglican minister Rev. W. Awdry and his son, Christopher. :)
He, the book series and the TV series are all British. 8)
