It’s another busy day for Stanley the Mailman!

What toddler doesn’t love getting mail? Especially when it’s delivered by everyone’s favorite hamster!

Stanley gets up before sunrise to sort through the mail in his post office. Then he sets off on his sporty blue scooter to deliver letters and gifts to his friends around town. Myrtle, Little Woo, and Charlie all receive exciting presents and correspondence. But will everyone be happy with what’s in Stanley’s mailbag?

Perfect for toddler fans of Maisy, William Bee’s beloved Stanley series features Stanley, an adorable hardworking hamster, and his community of rodent friends as they work different jobs and help each other along the way. The sturdy padded picture book format is ideal for readers at a transitional age between board books and picture books, and the books are trusted models of basic preschool concepts such as colors and shapes, kindness and teamwork, community helpers, jobs and careers, vehicles, and daily routines.

Don’t miss any of the titles in the Stanley series!
