Synopsis

The Giant Postman by Sally Grindley

The Giant Postman is creating mayhem in the village - until Billy comes to the rescue with a brilliant idea! He writes the giant postman a letter, explaining how frightened everyone is, and bravely delivers it himself. The Giant is delighted - he's never had any post before! He sends Billy a reply saying: sorry, but giants just can't help being clumsy...The story ends with a giant birthday party, and because the villagers choose such a clever present the whole village is able to celebrate their new friendship with the giant postman as a result!
