The Jolly Postman is delivering greetings and gifts to several fairy-tale characters on Christmas Eve. A card for Baby Bear; an aptly named game called 'Beware' from Mr Wolf is delivered to Red Riding Hood; while in hospital, Humpty Dumpty receives a Get Well Soon jigsaw; and there are three more surprise envelopes as well! Pedalling all around, everybody's favourite postman also pedals into all our hearts.
The Jolly Christmas Postman Hardback edition by Allan Ahlberg
Allan Ahlberg, a former teacher, postman, plumber's mate and grave digger, is in the super-league of children's writers. He has published over 100 children's books and, with his late wife Janet, created such award winning picture books as EACH PEACH PEAR PLUM and THE JOLLY POSTMAN - both winners of the Kate Greenaway Medal. His latest book - Kicking a Ball, illustrated by Sebastien Braun was published in May. He has also written prize-winning poetry and longer fiction. He lives in Bath, and, to avoid distractions, writes from a shed in his garden!
One winter's night a little boy is taken on a breathtaking, magical adventure when the Snowman and Snowdog he has made come to life and fly with him over the rooftops and across the sea to the North Pole.
The Jolly Postman delivers cards and letters to various fairy-tale characters. He has a letter of apology for the three bears from Goldilocks, a postcard from Jack for the giant, a solicitor's letter on behalf of Little Red Riding-Hood for the wolf who ate grandma, and so on.
The Jolly Postman has a magical adventure in which he suffers Alice's fate and shrinks to the size of a postage stamp and meets lots of well-known characters before he is restored to his correct size and left wondering whether it was all a dream.
The robbers of London town plan a desperate crime one Christmas Eve - to steal all the toys they can lay their hands on! Fortunately, the robbers meet their match in brave office Pugh who leaps into action and arrests the villains - all except Grandma Swagg who manages to get away.
