Synopsis

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.
