My five year old very much enjoyed this book. The boy's generosity with the mail boxes' "gifts" was a lovely ending to the story.

A very cute story, very imaginative, and has a great message about giving gifts to others.
A bit unrealistic, but still a fantastic story about a boy who asks and receives and learns a great lesson about having too much stuff.

Who wouldn't like a magical mailbox that answers your letters by sending dragons, dinosaurs, rubber ducks? Best of all, it delivers friends. Get those postcards and stamps ready, because this book will inspire you to send some old-fashioned mail.
