Description

A special edition of this classic picture book to celebrate its 30th anniversary - with festive foil on the cover!

The award-winning Jolly Christmas Postman is the ultimate children's picture book. There should be a copy beneath every Christmas tree in every house with young children!

It's Christmas Eve and the Jolly Postman is delivering greetings to various fairy-tale characters - there's a card for Baby Bear, a game appropriately called 'Beware' for Red Riding Hood from Mr Wolf, a get-well jigsaw for hospitalised Humpty Dumpty and three more surprise gifts.

Allan Ahlberg has published over 100 children's books and with his late wife Janet, created many award-winning children's picture books, including It Was a Dark and Stormy Night, Funnybones, Each Peach Pear Plum and Peepo! The Jolly Christmas Postman is the seasonal sequel of, the Kate Greenaway Medal winning, The Jolly Postman which, after 35 years, remains one of the most innovative and interactive children's books available.
