I enjoyed this book for a few reasons. First, the writing flows very well since it rhymes. For example the author writes, "The tire was flat, the Postman's flatter; His poor dog wonders what's the matter." I think that rhyming throughout the book grabs the readers attention and creates a writing pattern that readers can more easily follow.
Another reason I liked this book was because of the adventorous plot. For example, the post man seems to start his day like a normal postman would; he eats his breakfast and reads the paper then get on his bike to go to work. But then he takes a trip to the Wizard of Oz then runs into Alice in Wonderland and even Jack and the beanstalk. I think that incorporating these classic stories into this book causes the reader to use his or her imagination.
The big idea in the story is to use your imagination. Even through the job of a postman may seem boring he has to take mail to different people in fairytales. ( )

It's hard to judge this properly because most of the letters are missing in my version. Still, the concept is cute. A postman has deliveries for various characters in classic children's stories. We get to read the correspondence and it's always fun to open a letter! The problem with this one is that the story goes on too long and is too complicated.

The Jolly Pocket Postman was on his normal route when all of a sudden something unusual happened. He ends up taking a trip through the story lines of all sorts of books like "The Wizard of Oz" and "Alice in Wonderland".This is a great book to increase an imagination. ( )

This fun book has envelopes with letters throughout the story. There is a magnifying glass in the front that you can use to read the story and look at the pictures. It all rhymes, so that is fun for children to listen to. This is a great book for all aged children. You follow the postman on his route to deliver letters.
