Nicky wishes he would get something really great in the mail. His sister, Eva, wants to help, so she asks their eccentric mail carrier to bring mail just for him. When the mail carrier finds out that Nicky likes pink, he arrives each day with pink surprises galore--including flamingos and pigs. But what Nicky really wants is a letter, and in the end Eva sends him one that makes him truly happy. From well-known author Donna Jo Napoli comes a fanciful and original new picture book that will delight readers of all ages.
