Goldilocks was kind apologising to baby bear and inviting him to her party. The postman delivers lots of letters and it us fun to read them all. My favourite letter was Cinderella because it was a copy of her short story and Peter piper congratulated her on her new life

I love this book so much. Its about a postman that delivers lots of letters. i like the bit where he goes to the palace to deliver a letter and a sign says sold. The letter was for Cinderella and he drank lots of Champagne and almost fell off his bike oop's!

It has postcards and letters inside it, and it says 'Once upon a bicycle' instead of 'Once upon a time.'
