Children’s books – Guernsey


To celebrate this year’s PostEurop theme of children’s books Guernsey post have created its very own fictional children’s character, Penny the Postie.

Keith Robinson, the designer behind our Sherlock Holmes stamps, has beautifully written and illustrated The Adventures of Penny the Postie, which is a delightful, locally set story that sees Penny embark on an amazing journey. Having come across a strange old postbox, she soon finds herself on a desert island helping a pirate outwit the mean Captain Bullybones who has stolen his ship. But will Penny be able to get home to Guernsey?
