Special Delivery: A Bird in the Hand
SPECIAL DELIVERY is a simple story about the delights of trying something unexpected. When a heavily laden postman is suddenly surprised by a rain shower he discovers that all his packages have lost their labels. in the process of trying to work out the intended recipients, he discovers a bit more about the people on his rounds – and decides to bring a little sunshine into all of their lives.
