Some of the letters were very funny. Some were very stupid. I like the Jolly Postman, because he has a song about being 8. My favourite character is Cinderella because she was a princess and I love princesses. I would recommend this book to my friends because some of my friends love princesses, too.

The Jolly Postman is a very good book. It is very well set out with all the little pieces of information and cards. I thought it was very funny. I highly recommend it and it is very clever the way they have misspelt a few words on Goldilock's letter.
