The Lonely Mailman - Susanna Isern, Daniel Montero Galan, Jon Brokenbrow

Staff Pick

In Susanna Isern’s wonderful tale, an elderly badger—The Lonely Mailman (Cuento de Luz, $16.95)—faithfully makes his daily rounds, carefully observing his neighbors as he delivers their letters. Through their epistolary efforts, we see how the other animals converse and connect. With each page-turn, illustrator Daniel Montero Galán takes us through the mailman’s day—from the glorious reds of sunrise through the silhouettes of evening, and into a candlelit burrow. Galán fills his pages with animals as he gradually reveals a detective story that only the illustrations tell. It all culminates in a powerful and tender resolution that shows the badger he is not so lonely after all. Ages 7-10.
