Hello – I’m Banjo Robinson!
I travel the world visiting exciting places like the pyramids, the Taj Mahal and the Great Wall of China, sending fun-filled letters to my human friends back home. That’s right, real letters! In the post! Addressed to YOU!
Why don’t you send me a reply? You can leave it under the sofa before you go to bed and I’ll ask one of my animal pals at the United Paws Postal Service to collect it overnight. I can’t wait to see what your handwriting is like!
(I’ve heard great things.)
