Mr. Lipwig finds himself responsible for a post office that has stopped delivering mail. Piled to the ceiling with letters, the building is almost impossible to navigate. Lipwig's odd counterparts hold themselves to a standard on other aspects of the postal service - such as filling the inkwells - despite never delivering the mail. His plight is daunting, but he does the best he can, and winds up experiencing fairly-won victory for the first time in his life.
I would recommend this book to people who love fantasy books that have a resemblance to real life. Anyone who knows a postal employee would get a kick out of this book.
