I am sure that regular readers will know by now that two of my favourite things are books and personalised items, as I am a huge fan of both. So imagine my delight when Penwizard offered me the chance to review a personalised copy of The Snowman and the snowdog and customise it to feature a little girl who looks just like my toddler Sophia who features in the book. I was in my element.
Ordering and personalising your book is so quick and easy you simply visit the Penwizard website and select which book you would like from the huge selection available. You then decide if you want a hardback which is priced at £24.99 or a softback book £17.99 and then click create. You then select if it is for a boy or a girl and add their name and you also have the option of adding a personalised message in the book if you wish.
You then get to create the character of the book to look like your child by selecting their hair style and colour, skin tone, if they wear glasses or not and you are also given a choice of what colour clothing you would like them to be wearing. You will then be showing a preview of your character and book and then you simply add your postage and payment details and that is it, it took me a matter of minutes to create and order the book.
The book arrived in just a few days which I was really impressed by for a personalised book and I thought that it was fantastic quality. We have the hardback book just because I think these are better for young children, the pages of the book are lovely thick paper and every page is full of gorgeous illustrations and clear big black writing making them appealing to children.
The snowman and the snowdog is such a lovely story perfect for Christmas and I am planning on putting this book into Sophia's Christmas eve basket so that she can have this as her bedtime story on Christmas eve. Children will love this story as right from the start they are in the story as they are the main character and their name is mentioned regularly throughout.
Overall I really like this book as I think it is a lovely story, the quality is fantastic and children will love being featured in the story. I think this would be a perfect gift for a child as a Christmas present or as a special book to read on Christmas eve. I really do recommend them and think they would make a great addition to any book collection as it will be treasured and enjoyed for many years to come.
Disclosure: I was sent this book free of charge for the purpose of this review , however all opinions are my own.
