I purchased this for my god sons baby brother for his christening , it is well made and makes a truly lovely christening present and as it was near Christmas it had a double meaning. I would most certainly recommend this book for any special occasion . Thanks guys it went down really well with the parents and will be a special keepsake for the little one .

I bought this for my daughter's 1St Christmas and was so happy with it. And the detail that went into it to add her name into the story the hole way through and throughout the beautiful illustrations on each page of the book.

Your personalised name is actually the donkey and the name is also written through out the book on the buildings, in the sky and on a sheep. Not really what I expected.

Really quick delivery and a beautiful book as for 80th present not knowing what to buy this is so usual and brilliant gold writing so pleased with it !!

The book was bought as a Birthday Present with the scheduled delivery period covering the date although one day delay would have been acceptable. It actually took 8 days to arrive, 4 days later than expected.
The tracking only said it was despatched by Royal Mail 24 and gave no further information.
It was not specifically the responsibility of In The Book, however the use of Royal Mail is a negative.
