This competition is now closed.

Set against the backdrop of the Great Smog of London in December 1952, ‘Wishyouwas’ follows the story of a young girl called Penny and a tribe of small creatures who have made it their mission to help return all lost letters, including one particularly sweet, friendly creature called Wishyouwas. Wishyouwas introduces Penny to a magical world of letter finding.

While writing the book the author, Alexandra, took inspiration from her visits to The Postal Museum, especially the subterranean world you can experience with a ride on Mail Rail, our underground postal railway.

Perfect for children aged 7+ and their families to read together.
