        In the early 1960s, Allan studied teacher training in Sunderland, where he also met Janet, his future wife He had tackled a wide variety of jobs, ranging from postman to plumber s mate before working as a primary teacher for ten years Janet, however, discovering that she couldn t do the policing job , went on to study graphic design, which led her to her vocation as an illustrator.Several years later, bored with her then current job, and desperate for a creative opening, Janet asked Allan to write a children s book for her to illustrate Allan, having always wanted to write but being unable to find his niche, suddenly felt as though he was a clockwork toy and she had turned the key So began the career which would later lead them to become one of Britain s most successful author illustrator teams, producing ingenious books of the highest quality.Influenced by comics and cartoons, their perfect partnership went on to produce masterpieces including PEEPO , which reflected Allan s childhood I am the Peepo baby , EACH PEACH PEAR PLUM and THE BABY S CATALOGUE These books have all become children s classics, with their rhythmic prose, their mix of dottiness and sentiment appealing both to young children and to the parents who read them aloud Louette Harding, The Daily Mail.Working together, they saw their books as than simply the combination of words and pictures rather, a whole package which worked as a unity the tale is not in the typescript or in the pictures but in a way the two go together, a marriage of words and pictures Striving for perfection, their main aim was to produce William Morris books at Penguin prices Allan s writing took less time than Janet s illustration, so he also collaborated with other illustrators, such as Fritz Wegner, Andre Amstutz, Colin McNaughton, Faith Jaques, Joe Wright and Emma Chichester Clarke, thus creating the bestselling Happy Families series, which have been called miniature masterpieces The series has sold in excess of 2.6 million copies since its launch in 1980.1980 also saw the birth of their daughter, Jessica who was a great inspiration to their work.Allan also went on to write a range of fiction titles for older children, including WOOF , THE BEAR NOBODY WANTED, THE GIANT BABY and THE BETTER BROWN STORIES He is also much loved by teachers throughout the country for his two phenomenally successful poetry collections, HEARD IT IN THE PLAYGROUND and PLEASE, MRS BUTLER, which look at the funny side of life at school.Since Janet s sadly premature death in 1994, Allan has continued to work, recently producing his beautiful tribute to her, JANET S LAST BOOK, and continues to create wonderful books for children of all ages.In April 1998, Allan moved to London.For information, please see enpedia wiki Janet_Ah

    1. Ho Ho Hope you all read this book and love it like I do.Lets get this out of the way first, I LOVE CHRISTMAS. I love everything about it! I love the idea that at Christmas we can forget this busy technology driven world, with it’s fancy electronic mail, and go back to the finer things in life. Like sitting down and writing a letter to far away family, or watching a child’s beaming face as they post that letter to Santa, knowing he will read it and get to work making that toy with his elves.T [...]



    2. One of our very favourite Christmas books! I love all the little surprises in the envelopes, and the illustrations are gorgeous.


    3. “The Jolly Postman cycles on:He sees three fiddlers playing;The fast-eloping dish and spoon;The mighty beanstalk swaying;The seven dwarfs upon the hill;The jolly snowmen sleighing.”What a wonderfully, delightful book. I wish I had a child to read it to every year. What I decided to do with this book is to give it to our mail lady who has small children in order to pass on the joy.The colored drawings in this book are wonderful too, and you can look at them all day and every day and never gro [...]


    4. Charming, Witty, Delightful, and Festive!!I loved the "cards" and "letters" eluding to famous fairytale characters. I also loved the clever "book within the book," and the wildly imaginative, storybook game - all part of this holiday tale for young readers and those young at heart. And really, isn't just about everyone young at heart at Christmas?I do wonder, however, just how many wee ones will get the references to the more obscure storybook/fairytale/fable characters referenced? There were a [...]


    5. A delight for kids who love to engage with books. As the postman bring Christmas tidings, the reader is invited to open letters, read postcards, assemble a puzzle, and more!


    6. What a gorgeous Christmas book! It celebrates what Christmas is all about. The resources and presents in the letters are wonderful; jigsaw, board games and a pop up Christmas cards all which children can complete themselves. Children could create their own pop Christmas card, links to DT.



    7. Stunning! Joyous! Creative! Sensitive! I can’t praise this particular gem of a children’s book enough.


    8. The Jolly Christmas Postman is an amusing tale that follows the journey of a postman doing the rounds on his bicycle on Christmas Eve. On his back he carries a sack bursting full of letters, cards, and presents that he delivers to all sorts of well-loved characters from different traditional tales and nursery rhymes. Each letter comes in a different size and shape, and can be taken out of its stamp-addressed envelope and read out aloud in class. I had lots of fun with this book, which I used ove [...]


    9. This book is a follow up book to the Jolly Postman by Janet and Allan Ahlberg.This is a magical Christmas tale following the journey of the Jolly Postman delivering his letters at Christmas time. The book is written in rhyme and tells you about the people he delivers the letters to, all of whom are fairy tale characters such as little red riding hood and humpty dumpty. This book would be a great follow on to the teaching of traditional tales in Key Stage One as it shows what might have happened [...]


    10. Definitely a new favourite in our house and I am sure it will be a story that makes an apperance every December for a good few years to come.







    11. A great little rhyming Christmas tale about the post man delivering letters to fairy-tale characters, complete with a little game, booklet, and other letters.


    12. As a child I loved this book and still have my own copy which I'm sure I will have for many years to come.This story is a story about a postman who rides his bicycle around a town to deliver letters to people just before Christmas. His deliveries are to well know children's characters including, Little Red Riding Hood, Humpty Dumpty and the Gingerbread Boy. Each of the deliveries are something that the reader/audience can read/play with, for example when you look inside Humpty Dumpty's envelope [...]


    13. **Picture Story Book:Janet Ahlberg's "The Jolly Christmas Postman" is an very heartfelt and warming tale about a postman who delivers mail to our favorite storybook characters. As the story continues, he delivers a Christmas card to the Three Bears, a board game for Little Red Riding Hood, and even a puzzle for Mr. Humpty Dumpty at the hospital. There is a letter the Postman would rather not deliver to Mr. Wolf, but it turns out he is well and merry and means no harm to the Postman. Once the Pos [...]


    14. This was the first book that I read from The Jolly Postman series. I really enjoyed the hands-on nature of the book, along with the illustrations. It makes the book seem very inviting and exciting. In some ways it was even more accessible than 'The Jolly Postman', as mail is decreasing in popularity, but Christmas is still a time where post comes streaming through the door. Although the book is several years old, the choice of classic characters for The Jolly Postman to encounter means that it i [...]


    15. As you may (or may not) have noticed, I adore children's stories by Janet and/or Alan Ahlberg. At some point among my parenting of four tiny people, I learned just to head for the "A" section at the public library or book store.This one is a completely different level than the Baby's Catalog or Peek-a-Boo. It carries with it assumptions about children's knowledge of Christmas. It has a lot more text (mostly in the form of removable letters from one Christmas individual to another). So this isn't [...]


    16. "The Jolly Christmas Postman" written and illustrated by Janet Ahlberg is an interactive read aloud book about a postman who rides on a bike a delivers mail to different people during the Christmas season. He first stops at the Three Bear's house with a letter for Baby Bear from Goldilocks and makes his way all the way to Santa. Each place the postman stops at their is a pocket in the book that looks like an envelope where an actual card is kept. I think children will enjoy this part of the book [...]


    17. The Jolly Postman is on his rounds and it is Christmas Eve so, of course, he has to deliver a large number of letters and parcels to the characters who share his world. Among other things there is a card for Baby Bear from Goldilocks, a board game from the Wolf for Red Riding Hood, and not one, but two, books for The Gingerbread Boy. At each stop the Jolly Postman always takes a little time to talk with, and sometimes snack with, the characters whose homes he visits.Everywhere he goes the Jolly [...]


    18. The Jolly Christmas Postman -Allan and Janet Ahlberg5 starsThe Christmas Postman is a spin-off of the original Jolly Postman book. Both books concern a postman making his rounds on a bicycle through an unusual English village. This village is inhabited by fairy tale and nursery rhyme characters. The postman has Christmas mail to deliver to the likes of Baby Bear, The Big Bad Wolf, The Gingerbread Man, and Santa himself. Each time the postman makes a delivery, the actual item can be removed from [...]


    19. This was an awesome children's picture book. This book follows a postman through his deliveries and you start to notice some of the different characters. I like how the author decided to add famous children story characters into this book. This book also rhymed! That was pretty cool. This is a good book to read to children, especially around Christmas time. It even has different little things to look at and play with like a board game and letters. It helps the children to be busy. The illustrati [...]


    20. Another book from my childhood I managed to dig out is 'The Jolly Christmas Postman'. This wonderful book, the last book Janet and Allan Ahlberg wrote together and the last of three in the Jolly Postman series, tells the story of a postman delivering Christmas cards to a range of fairytale characters.The story is brilliantly and humorously written poem and offers children excellent insights into various literary skills such as poetry, setting, characterisation and intertextuality. I feel The Jol [...]


    21. ifteen years ago, long before anyone else thought of tucking actual letters and notes inside a book, Little, Brown published The Jolly Postman by Allan and Janet Ahlberg. This wonderful book gave children a chance to read letters sent from one fairy tale or Mother Goose character to another. Among the funny notes was one from Jack, who lolled on a sun-drenched island, thanking the Giant for the gold that let him afford such a nifty vacation. All this amusing correspondence was deftly illustrated [...]


    22. Janet Ahlberg's "The Jolly Christmas Postman" is an very heartfelt and warming tale about a postman who delivers mail to our favorite storybook characters.The story continues from the original 'Jolly Postman', book which I reviewed late last year, he delivers a Christmas card to the Three Bears and other exciting letters to our favorite story book characters, featuring again are the scary Mr Wolf and Red Riding Hood.Again the genius in this book comes from its classy illustrations and envelopes [...]


    23. As a child, I enjoyed reading the book ‘Jolly Postman’ the book gives children an experience to receive letters through the story as the book is very interactive for children. The author has set up the book with flaps as envelopes with letters inside, postcards and magazine articles. The book is about the jolly postman who delivers letters to different characters from children’s story books such as the three bears. The children get to learn about the different things you can receive throug [...]
