Polar Bear Postman

Polar Bear Postman by Seigo Kijima is the story of Milk, the postmaster in District 1 of the Arctic. One day he gets a postcard with a call for help from some red-crowned cranes who have lost their chick. He goes to all his animal friends looking for help, including a few who may have had the chick for a tasty meal. All is happily resolved through the mail at the conclusion. The illustrations are gorgeous and expressive.
