The Little Girl (or Boy!) Who Lost Her (/His) Name - David Cadji-Newby

thelittlegirlwhoDoes it take a little extra to get your grandchild interested in reading? These personalised story books could be the perfect Christmas present. 

The Little Girl Who Lost Her Name and The Little Boy Who Lost His Name each tell the story of a child who loses their name and embarks on a magical journey to rediscover it, tracking down the missing letters as they go.

Here comes the clever bit - you choose the name the book will centre on, so the story is all about your little darling! The adventures could be of a brave little boy called Alexander, or a fearless little girl called Lily - there are as many stories as there are names. 

Along the way, your chosen explorer will meet lots of weird, wonderful and wise characters, each offering the first letter of their name. So if your DGD is Emily, she’d meet a forgetful elephant, a rather vain mermaid, a cold-averse Inuit, a misunderstood Lion and a genial Yeti. Hey presto, EMILY’s name is found!
