Want Books? is a weekly meme hosted here at Chachic’s Book Nook and features released books that you want but you can’t have for some reason. It can be because it’s not available in your country, in your library or you don’t have the money for it right now. Everyone is free to join, just grab the image above. Leave a comment with a link to your post so I can do a roundup with each post.
In my post about Griffin and Sabine, both Jenn and Flannery mentioned The Jolly Postman by Janet Ahlberg and Allan Ahlberg in their comments. It’s a children’s book that follows a postman as he delivers mail to fairy tale characters. The book includes actual letters that readers can take out of their envelopes and read. I admit, I don’t read a lot of books for kids, I usually only read the ones that I buy for younger cousins, nieces, nephews and my godson. I’m going to make an exception for this one because I have a feeling I’m going to enjoy it. I dropped by the bookstore yesterday and inquired if they had a copy of this but unfortunately, it wasn’t available.
Have you read this book? I’d like to know what you think if you’ve read it. Also, let me know if you think of other books that follow the same format (includes actual postcards or letters inside them). As usual, feel free to let me know what book is in your wishlist.
