I’m very lucky in having a series of brilliant postmen and women who deliver marvellous parcels to me rather often, but none of them are quite like The Jolly Postman, who has been delivering cards and letters to various fairy-tale characters for 30 years now!
The sheer fun and delight of this book, with its openable envelopes and apparently handwritten letters to some of our favourite story characters never fails to delight – and 30 years after its first publication it is still packed with wonder and smiles and surprises.
I’m thrilled to have one copy to give away to a lucky blog reader. To be in with a chance of winning a copy of The Jolly Postman simply leave a comment on this blog post, saying hello, or perhaps sharing something of a favourite letter or parcel you’ve received.
