Like many kids, Liam just wants some mail. So he decides to write a letter to his mailbox asking for something BIG in return. As soon as he puts the letter in the mailbox, the mailbox begins to make strange noises and shake. When Liam looks inside, a dragon greets him with a blast of fire. He loves the dragon so much that he writes to the mailbox asking for even more surprises. This pattern continues until Liam has more things than he can handle. That’s when he comes up with his best idea yet and realizes that the best packages are even better when he can share them with friends!
