This book is about Peter and his birthday party and a letter to Amy. Peter wants to invite Amy to his party so he writes a letter and goes out to try and mail it. The weather is not good so he has some difficulty mailing the letter. He mails the letter and Amy shows up at the party.

My daughter really enjoys this book. Very nice story. Beautifully illustrated. A good book to explore how words can be used to create a full experiential picture. We will enjoy reading this again and again.
