“Dear Goffletop” is my first attempt of designing and writing a children’s book. Set in the valleys of Wales, the book tells the story of Sir Dafydd Toffee, the tiny postman who must embark on his travels to Goffletop, an island home to an even smaller population of folk who demand mail. The book hopes to teach children that even the smallest of favours can go an extremely long way.
Inspired by Janet Ahlberg’s presentation and illustrations for the Allan Ahlberg’s The Jolly Postman collection of books, I hope to make interactivity key in this book through the use of movable areas of the page to keep illustrations fresh.
