Product description

One of the greatest novelty books of all time. A postbag of secret letters from Fairyland – and YOU get to peek inside them! Why is this lucky postman so jolly? Well – he delivers letters and cards sent by fairytale folk. Do you want to look at them? We do! Goldilocks has posted a letter of apology to the Three Bears. (She’s sorry she ate their porridge.) Jack has sent a postcard to the Giant. But how will the Postman reach his front door? There’s even a letter from Little Red Riding Hood’s lawyer, addressed to the wolf who ate Grandma. Where else can you find a book with that?

  • A timeless Janet and Allan Ahlberg interactive classic
  • Novelty format lets readers open and read tiny letters
  • Unique and funny way to revisit favourite fairy tales
  • Over five million Jolly Postman series titles sold

Not suitable for children under 3 years of age. Small parts.
