I love that they are derivative of fairy tales and their characters - stories and people which kids will already be aware of. As a kid I remember it introduced the idea to me of putting these characters in new situations. That they lived lives other than just those we had read in the original stories. In other words, it taught me a way to be creative.
This is 5 star material, but I took off one star because the original version of this book was smaller but the pages were made of a hardier card stock material. The book is now bigger but the pages are made of thin paper which may even be thinner than some other picture books you will find. This seems a horrible choice, since this is a great book meant to be loved for years and maybe even passed down (if your mother will part with it!). I recently found a used older version in a shop and it was in great condition but was missing one of the letters, so thus I bought my new copy here at Amazon.
Since I got a copy almost 30 years ago, they have made some cost cutting measures and use cheaper envelopes and letters, but it is still tons of fun to read with an imaginative young child.
The book chronicles the day of a postman delivering letters to a host of popular children's story characters including the Big Bad Wolf, 3 Bears, and a Wicked Witch. At each stop, you can physically take the letter out of the book and read it. It is a totally unique and fun reading experience. Not to miss if you have an age appropriate kiddo at home!
Recommended for older children who will be careful - since the letters are removable, they could easily be lost or damaged. But the interactive quality of this book is sweet and delightful!
