So what is Thomas’s Musical Day for Percy about? Well, the synopsis gives us:

Oh no! Percy’s whistle is broken! Join Thomas as he explores the sounds around Sodor to put on a special surprise music show with Percy and his broken whistle. Then explore the sounds that you hear around you and see if you can make a music show of your own. This story, as with all Speakaboos stories, combines animation, read-along text and touch-screen interactions to improve reading comprehension.
