Although you can find personalised books cheaper, this was absolutely gorgeous and unique.

Only had a quick look but am sure my 4yr old will love it as he is in the story
Ordered hard backed version. Pleased with content of book . Like the way child's name is included in illustrations as well as text. Very pleased with the way child's photo presented as the end of the book....definitely worth including as makes book special. Paper could be a bit better quality but very pleased overall. Thank you.

Lovely product and good quality but a little expensive for what isn’t very many pages. (though it might be feeling that because the following day it was advertised at 25% or so off)

Such a sweet story and perfect fit my 2 year old nephew
Lovely book. Delivery took a couple days longer than expected
Ideal present for my granddaughter
Very personalised book she will love it.
It arrived quickly and looks ideal as a present for my son. I cannot judge the quality of its contents

Lovely gift for a milestone birthday
Lovely gift for a milestone birthday, and beautifully packaged. The only improvement i can think of would be to be able to choose a newspaper from the area of your choice ie, the area you were born in. Nottingham has no relevance to my family. That said, still a lovely gift.

I am from Australia. There is no tracking number provided once the book has been dispatched. The book arrived 3 days after the estimated time frame however, it was still in time for the event where the book was to be given as a gift. When I called In The Book, I was advised that it can take upto 26 business days to arrive. The service was acceptable.

Book itself is great but is only suitable for white little boys which seems unfair. all well and good personalising the name but if your child is of a different race or gender to the illustration, the book is pointless. Feels like this needs to be made clearer on the website.
Customer services not very understanding and slow at responding.

I ordered a newspaper for my Dad’s 80th birthday - he was born on 7th January 1940.
When he opened the paper it was 8th January and also a Glasgow Herald which would be great for someone who lived in this area but not for someone who doesn’t.
I emailed the day after his birthday 8th January to enquire why this was and apart from an automatic reply to say I would be contacted, have heard nothing. Needless to say I am disappointed with the customer service I have received.
