Absolutely lovely book, lots of information and beautiful pictures

Amazing - thank you. The book was amazing quality and looked great.
The font size was not very good for a young child to read, it was too 'fussy',.
Also the child's name was not mentioned enough.

Not interested in full customer satisfaction
Uploading a photo on the inset of the book was one the features that made me purchase the book, but this did not upload as I found out when the book came through late! Slightly disappointed they didn’t offer a reprint as a goodwill gesture for full customer satisfaction. The book was one of a number of presents for a 5 year old. So seeing her pic on the book would have made all the difference

Purchased as a gift
Purchased as a gift. Delivered earlier than expected, it turned out to be an awesome addition to a true baseball fan’s collection. Embossing was perfect, book was exactly what we expected.
