Product Description

One of the greatest novelty books of all time. A postbag of secret letters from Fairyland – and YOU get to peek inside them! Why is this lucky postman so jolly? Well – he delivers letters and cards sent by fairytale folk. Do you want to look at them? We do! Goldilocks has posted a letter of apology to the Three Bears. (She’s sorry she ate their porridge.) Jack has sent a postcard to the Giant. But how will the Postman reach his front door? There’s even a letter from Little Red Riding Hood’s lawyer, addressed to the wolf who ate Grandma. Where else can you find a book with that?

  • A timeless Janet and Allan Ahlberg interactive classic
  • Novelty format lets readers open and read tiny letters
  • Unique and funny way to revisit favourite fairy tales
  • Over five million Jolly Postman series titles sold

Not suitable for children under 3 years of age. Small parts.

Allan has been delighting children of all ages for more than thirty years. Classic characters like Burglar Bill and The Jolly Postman have become firm favourites with a generation of children who are now reading them to their own offspring. Innovative, funny and moving, his work encompasses storybooks, picture books, easy readers, joke books and novels as well as poems.

Many of his books were collaborations with his wife, Janet, an illustrator, and they quickly became one of Britain’s leading author/illustrator teams.

Influenced by comics and cartoons, their perfect partnership went on to produce masterpieces including Peepo!, Each Peach Pear Plum and The Baby’s Catalogue.

Janet sadly died in 1994, but Allan has gone on to work with other illustrators and is still producing lots of new books.
