Peppermint Post is functioning at a frantic pace this Christmas season with letters arriving from all over the world with expressions of children’s greatest wishes. Just as the postmaster declares the job complete, he discovers a card, lost in the fray. After scrambling to create one last gift order, the penguin postal workers fly Santa’s rusty, old, dilapidated sleigh all the way to the residence of the little girl who sent the card. They make it just in time to hand-deliver the present to Santa. As Postmaster Buck passes it to Santa, standing in the distance, the child’s eyes sparkle with delight. Now that her wish has been granted, every child can wake up to a holiday filled with dreams come true.
Peppermint Post is a creative tale of making sure one young child’s dreams are fulfilled at Christmastime. With hard work and determination, her wishes are realized. Postmaster Buck and his many penguin post workers add a unique twist to an otherwise traditional holiday theme. They liven up the story with their quick wit and humorous antics. Illustrator Stephanie Laberis’s vibrant, animated pictures nicely complement the text. The detail and emotions illuminated by them will likely capture the intrigue of youngsters. The text is at a reading level suitable for most second and third graders, but the target age range for this holiday picture book is five to nine.
