If you're a regular reader of my blog then you will know I'm a big fan of personalised children's items. Therefore, I was so pleased to be asked to review a new personalised christmas story book from Penwizard staring Ben and Holly and of course Eva.
You may remember that I reviewed one of their princess potty books which starred Eva. She got on really well with that book. Catch up on that review here, Potty Book review.
You can have the book in paperback or hardback costing either £14.99 or £19.99. You can view it here, Ben and Holly Christmas When purchasing the book you then get to personalise a character to star in it by adding their name, hair, eye and skin colour and their hair style. You can also add a message to the book which I think is a lovely sentiment as it makes the book more special. The book arrived very quickly after it was ordered.
The story is about Ben, Holly and your child going to the north pole. It features all the TV programme's main characters such as Gaston the ladybird, nanny Plum and the wise old elf etc. The gang then help Santa deliver presents to their human friend Lucy.
Eva has loved the book. She loves anything to do with herself so to hear her name being read in the book, immediately grabbed her attention. She listens to me read the pages and then she takes great pleasure in finding herself in the illustrations. She loves spotting herself among her favourite characters and of course Santa.There's a particular part in the book where Santa is talking to Eva. She thinks that part is great. The wording is easy for her to follow and the story is engaging for little one's. She asks for it to be read every night before bed.
Both of us are really happy with this book. The quality is great. I love the fact that you can have it in a hardback as even though softback's are nicer for children to hold, I find they get ruined quite quickly though being bent etc. The book took minutes to create and it arrived quickly. The story makes for a unique, enjoyable christmas read that is a must for any Ben and Holly fans. I've now got my eye on the Peppa Pig christmas book and the Snowman and the Snowdog books for christmas.
