Marie Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 2 Sep 2020

Loved this book so does my granddaughter.

MichelleH Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 Aug 2018

This personalised first day at school book is excellent, I was really touched when I read it and I know the parents of the child I have bought it for will be too, and it is something that they can cherish and keep and give to her when she is older.

Jean Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 Aug 2018

I bought this as a present for a little girl who is very fond of Rabbits. This book was just what I was looking for in picture format and text. Little girl was absolutely thrilled when I gave it to her. So I am very pleased indeed with my purchase. Arrived very quickly too.my only criticism is... children in the UK are taught to read and write with one capital letter and then lower case letters in their name. The text in the book is a mixture of First letter capital followed by lower case, and all capitals. Rather a shame that they have done this in my opinion.however, I would still purchase again.

olo4 Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 Aug 2018

What a buy!!This book is just fantastic. The pages are colourful and well illustrated.... but the story is outstanding. It brought back memories of taking my two daughters to their first day at school. I bought this for my granddaughter.... she loves it and it has put her at ease and she is now really looking forward to her first day at school in a few days time!

Delayed delivery and book cover was damaged

There were delays with delivery but this was due to Covid-19 restrictions. Would’ve appreciated an email to update me about this. The book was nice however, I was slightly disappointed that the cover had scratch marks on it and slightly damaged at the corners. Overall, lovely gift idea but disappointed about the damages considering how expensive the product is.

Wonderful book for my great nephew

Wonderful book for my great nephew, he will be delighted with it. I have purchased personalised books from you previously, and have always been delighted with the quality of these books. Thankyou!

nicola roberts Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 16 Jan 2021

Great book

The book itself is an amazing gift but I thought the name would automatically be printed on the front of the book. I didn't realise you had to pay extra. Instead my message had been printed onto a square of paper and glued onto the page inside the book. Bit tacky!!

Krystal O’Donnell Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 15 Jan 2021

I thought there would be a delay…

I thought there would be a delay getting my book to Australia due to the pandemic. But there wasn’t! From the moment I purchased my item the process was prompt and seamless

John Gibbs Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 15 Jan 2021

Our grand-daughter was delighted!

Delivered ahead of schedule which was excellent. The book is well produced, colourful and entertaining and our grand-daughter loved seeing her name repeatedly included in the story.
