The Jolly Postman – #AtoZfavbooks May Challenge – Day 10

The Jolly PostmanThe Jolly Postman by Janet and Allan Alhberg …

… Day 10 May #AtoZfavbooks challenge.

I had no trouble choosing The Jolly Postman by Janet and Allan Ahlberg for Day 10 of the #AtoZfavbooks challenge.

This clever story combines fairy tale characters and the daily delivery of letters from our ‘jolly’ postman. Riding his bicycle round the town, his first stop brings a letter of apology for the Three Bears from Goldilocks. He’s also got a delivery of witchy goods to the witch from Hansel and Gretel and a postcard from the Giant to Jack.

This is a book I have to supervise at the moment as there are various removable letters tucked into pouches throughout the book which could easily to lost or ripped by my grandson who isn’t the most careful of people but he enjoys the story and the pictures (especially as The Three Bears is one of his favourite bedtime tales).
