CHARACTER COUNTS: It Came in the Mail
It Came in the Mail
By Ben Clanton
Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, 2016. Picture Book.
Liam loves getting mail. The only problem is he never gets any, so he comes up with a plan—if he sends some mail, he might get some in return. Not knowing who to send a letter to, Liam sends it to his mailbox. In return, he gets Sizzlefritz, a fire breathing dragon. Delighted with his gift, he writes a letter for more, then more. Soon he has so many gifts he doesn’t know what to do with them...until he comes up with another idea. How about all the other kids around the world who wished they got things in the mail?
An imaginative, humorous picture book about sharing your blessings. Another great addition to Clanton’s works.
