'Pete The Bee And The Old Engine' is the thirty-seventh Pete the Bee story written by British author Paul Cook. The short stories are centred around the rescue farm where Pete and his friends live. The animals, which include Shebdon the shire horse and Brandon the fly, share many adventures together but Pete usually saves the day. These lighthearted stories can be enjoyed by children of all ages. In this story, Pete the bee finds an old engine in one of the barns and none of the animals can work out what it would be used for. However, Shebdon the old shire horse remembered the engine being used on the farm and was able to tell them all about it.
