I found the perfect gift for our first grandchild, due in September, in Waterstones, Telford today.

Not only is the book topical for 2012 and local, Much Wenlock, it is even printed and published in Shropshire.

How Peggy the Much Wenlock Piglet took part in the Olympian Games

Peggy the piglet has a wonderful time at the Olympic Games in Much Wenlock and even gets to meet the founder of the modern day games

Dr. William Penny Brookes. This delightful book is written by Jocelyn Adams and illustrated by Isobel Bushell.

I can happily recommend this book to anyone with or without children, a super read.

The Olympic Torch is passing through Much Wenlock, Ironbridge and Telford tomorrow afternoon, Wednesday 30th May. Celebrate London 2012.
