Jim Button came to Morrowland by accident. No one on the island could explain the origin of the baby that the postman brought in a package one day. Mrs. Whaat has no idea, neither has Mr. Sleeve or the King – and not even Luke, the engine driver, who usually has an answer for everything. Only one thing was clear: Jim Button is to have the best life in Morrowland, which one could wish for a little boy. And that’s exactly what happened.
But now the somewhat confused King Alfred the Quarter-to-Twelth fears his island with the two mountains may suffer from overpopulation, and he hastily announces to Luke that Emma, his locomotive, has to be removed. Luke is determined to leave Morrowland with his beloved Emma. Without batting an eyelash, Jim decides to accompany his best friend. In the wide world, he might find out where he really came from and how he was taken to the island. So they sail off with Emma and set out on a journey full of exciting adventures!
