The postman delivers letters for famous story characters including the three bears, the wicked witch, the giant from Jack and the Beanstalk, and more.

I like this book because some pages are formatted like the front of an envelope, and when you turn the page, you can open it up and find actual letters. It allows children to get a different perspective on well known fairy tales. It also shows kids what the format of letters are like, and how to compose them for themselves. The illustrations are funny and detailed. It gives readers a lot to observe.
