Last Christmas Adam fell in love with The Snowman and the Snowdog by Raymond Briggs. We reviewed The Snowman magazine as part of our Christmas Eve Box and Adam was hooked. Nana even knitted Adam his own Snowdog. So we were over the moon when Penwizard asked us to review the personalised version of The Snowman and the Snowdog.
The Penwizard website is extremely easy to use. Within a few clicks you can add your child’s name, gender and can even add a personal message at the beginning of the book.
You can also select your childs hairstyle and colour, skin tone, clothes colour and add glasses. Within a minute you are ready to enter your delivery details. We ordered a hard backed version and it arrived within two days.
As soon as the book arrived Adam saw that his name was on the front cover. The book is entitled “The Snowman and the Snowdog starring Adam Edwards” and is in a big clear font. This nice touch immediately distinguishes the book from the original and Adam loved to see his name on the front cover.
I have to be honest that in the past I have avoided personalised books. I found that added details didn’t flow with the storyline and that it was obvious where the edited text was. However, this book exceeded my expectations. Our personal message looked a natural part of the book and the personalised features felt natural.
The 32 page book was very good quality with lovely thick pages. We love that the story is exactly the same as the original with wonderful illustrations.
Adam loves to snuggle up and listen to the story with his knitted Snowdog. His personalised Snowman and the Snowdog is a perfect addition to our winter time story collection and is a wonderful keepsake for years to come.
Penwizard offers a range of personalised stories to suit every reader. Titles include Peppa Pig, Cars, Frozen, Winnie The Pooh and Spiderman – there is something for every little one.
