Review by

In this book, we follow a postman through the land of all fairy tales as he delivers letters. From Hansel and Gretal, to Cinderella, to the Big Bad Wolf... each one has a letter to read. These letters each come in their own envelopes. This is such a fun book to share with children because it is interactive and tells funny side stories to their favorite fairytales and characters. Written in partial rhyme, it has a sing-song ring to it that makes fun to read.
