I liked opening the letters in the book. Some of the letters were boring like the wolf letter but I liked the postcard for the giant and the Goldilocks letter that is my best one.

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.

This book is about a postman who was delivering letters to different houses.

My favorite character was Goldilocks because she wrote a letter to the 3 bears to come to her birthday party and she made so many mistakes.
