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.
