The Jolly Christmas Postman
In this follow-up to the Ahlbergs' classic The Jolly Postman or Other People's Letters, we follow our happy postman on his Christmas rounds in a fairytale town. Children will love exploring the illustrated details and seeing what's in all the envelopes.
Find out what's on Humpty-Dumpty's get-well jigsaw and who has sent Red Riding Hood a board game for Christmas. Preschoolers will enjoy the rhyming text and familiar characters and older children can start to read the story and letters themselves. An old favourite that will be pulled out every Christmas and probably throughout the year.
