I was really hoping to write this post last week, as it was National Book Day but time got away on me and we read the most delightful book, the Little Girl Who Lost her Name by David Cadji Newby.
It all starts with a little girl who wakes up in the morning to find that her name has gone AWOL and this is where the adventure begins. She goes on a mission to find the letters of her missing name, each letter has a fantastic character and illustration including a Miserable Mermaid and an Ant Eating Aardvark plus a few more.
I don’t want to spoil the ending for you, but my daughter worked out halfway through the book that it was in fact spelling her own name. The look of surprise and excited was brilliant.
The books were officially launched last week and can be personalised for Boys and Girls. I honestly think they would make a brilliant present (£16.99).
Disclosure: I received a copy for review purposes
