"I read the book 'The Jolly Postman'...


"I read the book 'The Jolly Postman' by Janet Ahlberg. It was about a postman who went to people's houses to deliver their mail. First, the postman went to the three bears' house. The three bears got a letter from Goldilocks saying she was sorry for what she did. Then, he went to the witch's house and gave her a letter that had stuff that she could order for her house. He went to the Giant's house and gave him a postcard from Little Jack. Next, the Jolly Postman went to Cinderella's castle to give her a letter from the Peter Piper Press."

"I like the story 'The Ugly Duckling.' First, I liked the part when the duckling came to the cat and chickens' house and they said 'get out.' They were mean. Second, I liked when the duckling turned into a swan."
