I have yet to find a better, more magical Christmas book
on 17 December 2014
My mother bought this book for me when I was just seven years old (a while ago now!), I was never big into reading but as a child I loved this book and still have my original copy having bought a number of copies since as presents.
If not familiar with The Jolly Postman format, you journey with the very jolly postman and as he delivers the letters you get to open them (some pages double as envelopes), and in each wonderfully illustrated envelope there is an equally beautiful letter or item (humpty dumpty gets a jigsaw of himself that you can help him to put together!). This interactive book really is magical, and made more so by the Christmas element; in my opinion this book is very slightly better than the original ‘Jolly Postman’ book.
This book really makes for a lovely gift and even those children not as keen on reading, like I was, will enjoy this special Christmas book.
