Ok, here's a weird one...

The school library is closing down in order to come back bigger and better than ever.

Part of the close-down has morphed into culling and de-cluttering.  Getting rid of old, irrelevant books.

Someone came across a copy of 'The Jolly Postman' (a story with letter/envelope inserted into some pages) and thought DD might like it.  (This is a senior school library, so not sure why a pre-school book was in there!)

She LOVES it!

But, two of the letters are missing.

I have made up some letters (one is to the wicked witch in Hansel and Gretel and one is to Goldilocks) but was wondering if I could find out what the original letter were.

So, a long-shot, but does anyone have a copy or know where I can find out what the original letters said?

I have a copy of the book. If you PM me your email address I can scan them for you and email them

having said that, I am super busy the next couple of days so if someone else jumps in and helps first I won't mind

The jolly postman is definitely still in print and widely available - ask at your local bookstore and they should have it!

Have a copy as well, so let me know if you need a copy of the letters.  My niece and children loved that book and I think there a couple of other books with letters.

thanks Aquarium.  I am looking for the one to Goldilocks, though.  I think she gets one before her party...

My sister had it when she was little so I bought it for my boys. I also found the Christmas one at a secondhand book fair in very good condition with all letters!

The one to the wicked witch is actually a Witches Gazette type thing! A newsletter.

The one to Goldilocks is a birthday card with a (?pound) note in it.

Hopefully someone will copy them for you and send them through.

Here's the witch one
