Presented in a unique gift box
Filled with images by the illustrator and author, Edward Lear

All kids love a bit of nonsense! The Owl and the Pussycat poem by Edward Lear is weirdly wonderful, written in rhyme and boasts original illustrations by Lear on every other page. Along with large easy-to-read-text, the individual will absolutely adore naming and spotting the Owl, Pussycat and the Turkey – they’ll be mesmerised at just how realistic the illustrations are!
Even more amazing, the book itself is bound in a special, hardback cover which features the recipient’s name on the front. Their name is even embedded along the top of each page too, presented inside a one-of-a-kind gift box for a timeless finish. At the back of the book, the individual will find a marvellous surprise… Edward Lear’s posthumously published poem about the Owl and the Pussycat’s offspring is included at the end of the story, so the individual can find out what happened after this famous pair sail in their pea green boat!
Personalise the book with any name of up to 12 characters over 1 line, which will appear on the cover of the book and along the top of every other page. Add a special Message of up to 80 characters over 2 lines, which will appear on the opening title page.
The book is available in hardback, presented inside a unique gift box with embossing. The book itself measures 20 x 20cm (L X W). Check spelling, punctuation and capitalisation. Accents and other symbols cannot be printed unless otherwise stated.

Book well presented
Book well presented, but would have been better if personalised first page had name and greeting on the page instead of a stick on label. Paper used was of average weight and quality. Fast delivery though.

Funny book, but not full size!
Funny book, looks just like a Haynes manual BUT it is probably half the size so bear that in mind.
I had the box just to make it a bit more special.

Customer service was excellent and friendly
Customer service was excellent, I received a quick friendly response to my query as I was worried that I would not receive the delivery in time for my friends baby shower, so they upgraded my delivery to priority. I received the book on time and my friends daughter loved her 'Big Sisters are Great' personalised book, she loved finding her name on the pages!

The book is amazing and worth every…
The book is amazing and worth every penny spent. The fact that it’s personalised to the person it’s for, is a bonus. And makes this book so unique. Can’t wait for my little cousin to receive it. I know she will love the stories in it as much as I did when I was younger.

Thank you for your review,
We are sorry to hear that the team were unable to catch the amendment.
The email was picked up first thing on the Monday Morning however sadly the order had already been printed as the production team can run up to 24 hours a day therefore we do request that all personalisation is checked within the basket stage and before check out as we can not guarantee that orders can be amended but will always try our best.
The customer service advisor did sent their apologies for this and offered a discount if a new order needed to placed. Please let us know if we can do anything further and we are happy to help.
Once again we are sorry that we were unable to make the correction in time.
Kind Regards, The In The Book Team
