About this deal

By far the best book I've ever bought, I couldn't wait to read it, so as my little boy went for a nap I quickly had a read. Janet Ahlberg won two Kate Greenaway Medals for illustrating their books and the 1978 winner Each Peach Pear Plum was named one of the top ten winning works for the 50th anniversary of the Medal (1955–2005).

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Janet Ahlberg, along with Allan Ahlberg, created some of the world's most popular picture books, including EACH PEACH PEAR PLUM and THE JOLLY CHRISTMAS POSTMAN, both winners of Greenaway Medals, and THE BABY'S CATALOGUE, inspired by their daughter Jessica.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. One of the loveliest things to do at Christmas is cuddle up and enjoy a good picture book together – and these classic stories have really stood the test of time. In the first book of this now classic series, we are taken down the dark, dark street to the dark, dark house and into the dark, dark cellar in which the skeletons live. We are experiencing delays with deliveries to many countries, but in most cases local services have now resumed. It takes quite a while to read the book with a child, so much is left for you to discuss together, to comment on, to remember and love.

Bought this for my four year old as I thought he was old enough to appreciate it now, and he loves it! Important: Your credit card will NOT be charged when you start your free trial or if you cancel during the trial period. It is still the same and I love that it has continued to have the same lovely illustrations as it has done for many years. 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!He has published over 100 children's books and, with his late wife Janet, created such award winning picture books as Each Peach Pear Plum and The Jolly Postman - both winners of the Kate Greenaway Medal. In this follow-up to the Ahlbergs' classic The Jolly Postman or Other People's Letters, we follow our happy postman on his Christmas rounds in a fairytale town.

We take pride in offering a wide selection of used books, from classics to hidden gems, ensuring theres something for every literary palate. Little ones will love opening the envelopes to read the post in this magical story, full of festive, fairy tale surprises! Preschoolers will enjoy the rhyming text and familiar characters and older children can start to read the story and letters themselves. It's so beautifully written with rhymes and little envelopes for you to explore with your child, hopefully it withstands my toddler as It's definitely a book I would like to keep and pass through generations.Classic characters like Burglar Bill and The Jolly Postman have become firm favourites with a generation of children who are now reading them to their own offspring. Our sons loved Alan and Janet Ahlberg books when they were young and we still have an old, much loved Burglar Bill and Cops and Robbers (Ho, ho).
