Written and illustrated by Ben Clanton

Published by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers


Publisher's Summary

From the author-illustrator of Something Extraordinary comes a tale filled with dragons, pickles, friendship, and lots of mail—perfect for fans of Mo Williams and Bob Shea. Liam really wants some mail, so he writes a letter to his mailbox asking for something in return. His mailbox delivers, sending Liam more than he could have hoped for…and how! But as the mail starts to pile up, Liam realizes that the best packages and parcels are even better when shared with friends.

Mr. Staccato

Spent many carefree hours hunting clues with the Hardy boys and defending Redwall Abbey.

I'm sure others will enjoy this but I strongly dislike when authors use cheap kid language like "boogers" and such. It made me think about our incessant need to check our digital mailboxes and not that this book promotes it, but it reminded me of it.
