Haven't opened the book fully as it is for a Christmas present but from what I have seen it looks very good quality. Smaller than expected.
Brilliant book, exactly as described, in fact better than expected. My son-in-law loved it. Unique gift, personalized. Excellent website, excellent service, delivered exactly as promised. Thank you.

Bit disappointed when it arrived
Bit disappointed when it arrived, expected more. Thought along the lines of a full size book for the cost! Not personalized other than front cover with names and first page, only 35 pages in all.
Message to hubby could have been more visible, such as in BOLD.

Fantastic books, love how the pirate book rhymes. Only thing I’d say to improve is possibly making the text a bit bigger. Over all though they were well worth the buy!
