‘At Midnight, when all good folk should be abed, the Night Post rides forth to serve the dead.’ – Victorian Children’s Verse
Written by Benjamin Read and illustrated by Laura Trinder, NIGHT POST is the story of the other mail service; the one you haven’t heard of, the one that starts work at midnight and delivers to all the creatures of the night. Whether ghost or ghoul, witch or werewolf, or just downright odd things with tentacles, they all have post and someone has to deliver it, no matter how terrifying it might be to do so.
NIGHT POST follows a very special type of postman on his round, as he delivers macabre mail to a spooky set of customers. From graveyard, to cave, tower to lair, the post must get through, even if the postman is sometimes mistaken for supper.
Offering a fascinating glimpse into a midnight world, NIGHT POST is a picture book suitable for Children of All Ages.
Available to buy or order from all good comic shops.

Even without words, writer Benjamin Read shows a sly wit and a storytelling flair while artist Laura Trinder matches his whimsy and good humor in each panel she paints and draws.” Charles de Lint (The Wildlings trilogy, The Cats Of Tanglewood Forest, The Borderlands series)
“An absolute delight. Dreamlike, beautiful, imaginative and enchanting.” Kurt Busiek (Astro City, Avengers, Conan, Marvels)
“Brilliantly clever, original, funny and tinged with a taste of the macabre…” Dad/Charlotte (Read It Daddy!)
“A gorgeously drawn picture book, a wonderfully imaginative comic, full of invention…” Richard Bruton, FPI blog
