Product 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.

Not suitable for children under 3 years of age. Small parts.

    The jolly christmas postman

    This fantastic book has been shared and enjoyed for many years in our family! Our grownup children remember it from their childhood and a couple of years ago we got a new copy for our grandchild. We have recently bought another copy for our great nephew! We are so looking forward to seeing his delight when he looks inside.
    Five stars!!!
