As well as being a clothes-a-holic Elsa is something of a book lover which makes us very happy at What Elsa Wears HQ. Elsa’s Daddy reads two books a week and I used to be the same before I had babies. I now just fall asleep when I try to read anything more challenging than Twitter!
We are also huge fans of books ‘featuring’ Elsa & Ted. This is fairly easy for Ted; he has a couple of shelves in his bedroom solely dedicated to books such as ‘One Ted Fell Out Of Bed’ and the ‘Detective Ted’ series. But not as much luck with Elsa, particularly when we are trying to avoid the Ice Queen association. So personalised books are the way forward.
The Penwizard version of The Snowman & The Snowdog is the classic tale with the added twist that it stars your child. Elsa was immediately intrigued by the story having her name in it & found the drawings of ‘her’ fascinating.
“That’s Big Girl Elsa”, is her favourite thing to say.
My initial thought was that the story may be a little old for Elsa at just under three. But although it is longer than most books we read it does keep her interest.
The Penwizard website is very simple to use and the books are easily personalised. Just enter the child’s name, a personalised message if required and a few options on hair style and pyjama colour and hey presto – your personalised book is done.
The illustrations are beautiful and whilst the options on personalisation of them are obviously limited I think that you can create enough of a likeness to your child. I can definitely see Elsa looking a bit like this in a few years!
The Snowman & The Snowdog books would make a lovely Christmas (sssshhhh!) gift and are available in either paperback or hardback format with prices starting from £17.99. Visit Penwizard here to create your very own personalised book.
