Featuring no words, Night Post is a picture book for all ages, stunningly illustrated, in the mould of Raymond Briggs, Julia Donaldson and Janet and Allan Ahlberg.
For fans of classic tales.
“At Midnight, when all good folk should be abed, the Night Post rides forth to serve the dead.”
– Victorian Children’s verse
Written by Benjamin Read and illustrated by Laura Trinder, Night Post is the story of the other mail service; the one you haven’t heard of, the one that starts work at midnight and delivers to all the creatures of the night. Whether ghost or ghoul, witch or werewolf, or just downright odd things with tentacles, they all have post and someone has to deliver it, no matter how terrifying it might be to do so.
Night Post follows a very special type of postman on his round, as he delivers macabre mail to a spooky set of customers. From graveyard, to cave, tower to lair, the post must get through, even if the postman is sometimes mistaken for supper.
Offering a fascinating glimpse into a midnight world, Night Post is a picture book for all ages.
