Product description

Read and play with The Jolly Postman – Janet and Allan Ahlberg’s much-loved classic The Jolly Postman or Other People’s Letters has been a favourite for children ever since its first publication in 1986. Children can take each colourful letter out of its envelope and discover for themselves what well-known fairy-tale characters are writing to one another.

The Jolly Postman has delivered the mail . . . what could possibly be in the letter from Goldilocks to the Three Bears? There is a message for the Wicked Witch . . . but who would write to her?

As the postage stamp says, this is ‘first-class’ fun for children everywhere, and the fun continues with The Jolly Christmas Postman, a follow-up full of festive letter cheer.

Allan Ahlberg has published over 100 children’s books and with his late wife Janet, created many award-winning children’s picture books. The Ahlbergs’ books are nursery bookshelf standards and have been the recipient of worldwide acclaim and awards, including the Kate Greenaway Medal.

Burglar Bill; Cops and Robbers; Each Peach Pear Plum; The One and Only Two Heads; Son of a Gun; The Little Worm Book; Two Wheels Two Heads; Funny Bones; A Pair of Sinners; Happy Families; Peepo!; The Ha Ha Bonk Book; Help Your Child to Read; Ten in a Bed; Please mrs Butler; Daisy Chains; Yum Yum; Playmates; Foldaways; Woof; The Cinderella Show; The Baby’s Catalogue; The Jolly Christmas Postman; The Jolly Pocket Postman; The Clothes Horse and Other Stories; The Mighty Slide; Starting School; Heard it in the Playground; The Bear Nobody Wanted; It was a Dark and Stormy Night; The Giant Baby; Baby Sleeps; Blue Buggy; Doll and Teddy; See the Rabbit; Please Mrs Butler; The Better Brown Stories; The Boyhood of Burglar Bill
