Penwizard produce personalised books for kids including Peppa Pig books! When we were given the opportunity to have one for Little Man I was excited as this is right up my street! He is a big fan of Peppa Pig and I knew he would love starring in the book himself!! We have had these types of books before but what I wasn’t expecting was the feature where you can make a Peppa Pig character of your child – genius!

Welcome to The Literal Toddler & Other Stories/Dramas. It is no secret that I think toddlers are awesome, I am loving this stage with Little Man. He is funny, cute, loving and, well, downright confusing. Okay, so I’ll admit; they’re not always awesome.
