An utterly charming tale set in 1950's rural England, full of heart and whimsy. Billy Button has always dreamed of being a telegram boy. He loves their smart uniforms and shiny bicycles, but he's too young for the job. So when the regular telegram boy breaks his arm and Mr and Mrs Button are in urgent need of a new boy, Billy jumps at the chance to don the Royal Mail badge and ride his very own bicycle. But will Billy be able to keep all the village residents happy with his deliveries? He might have to work some
magic to make grumpy Mr Grundle smile...
