Although I loved the quality of this book and the brilliant personalisation, I did feel the book was a bit thin for an encyclopaedia and was short on content. Even three year olds need to dip in to find out about lots of things and it would have lasted them a few years had it had more content.

Lovely books. Children delighted.

Delayed delivery and book cover was damaged
There were delays with delivery but this was due to Covid-19 restrictions. Would’ve appreciated an email to update me about this. The book was nice however, I was slightly disappointed that the cover had scratch marks on it and slightly damaged at the corners. Overall, lovely gift idea but disappointed about the damages considering how expensive the product is.

Wonderful book for my great nephew
Wonderful book for my great nephew, he will be delighted with it. I have purchased personalised books from you previously, and have always been delighted with the quality of these books. Thankyou!

The book itself is an amazing gift but I thought the name would automatically be printed on the front of the book. I didn't realise you had to pay extra. Instead my message had been printed onto a square of paper and glued onto the page inside the book. Bit tacky!!

I thought there would be a delay…
I thought there would be a delay getting my book to Australia due to the pandemic. But there wasn’t! From the moment I purchased my item the process was prompt and seamless

Our grand-daughter was delighted!
Delivered ahead of schedule which was excellent. The book is well produced, colourful and entertaining and our grand-daughter loved seeing her name repeatedly included in the story.
