Being able to personalise the book makes the gift extra special

Very good in the main although it assumes all husbands like DIY and football. Illustrations are great and it brings back memories of the original books.

What a funny read, my husband loved his book and can't wait for a new one to comes out.
Ian197029 Aug 2018
Personalised Ladybird Book which had the same charm, feel and quality of the originals. Personalisation was extremely good not only on front cover and spine but on various items within the illustrations, E.g. Cake on Table had the Person's Name on it, but not just the one item/page but several occurrences. Also option to insert personal message in front pages. Price possibly a little more than would ordinarily pay but the appreciation on the face on the recipient was worth that little extra I would suggest, can't really put a value on that. Really easy to order deal with supplier. Very Unique gift, well worth it overall.

I bought 'The Husband' Ladybird book as a gift for my husband on our first wedding anniversary. It is great quality and each page is an amusing take on the role of the husband. Would definitely recommend. We have enjoyed reading it.

Bought this as a part of a first (paper) anniversary gift for my husband. He thought it was funny then noticed it was personalised and thought it was even funnier! Definitely a good shout ?

This is a 60th birthday gift to my big little brother, I’m big lil sis (the eldest of my three brothers)
This is a 60th birthday gift to my brother in another county to where I live, so not visually been able to see the item purchased due to covid travel restrictions.
It’s fair to say as an avid MC supporter he is really pleased with it so far.
The book arrived in good time well before the expected date & I believe well packaged.
All in all both my self & brother really pleased with gift/purchase.

Very dissatisfied with book I received
Very dissatisfied with book I received.
The photo copying of many of the pages was very bad and barely readable. The pictures were just black indistinguishable blobs.
This was a birthday present and I was so embarrased when I gave it to them as it was such poor quality and unreadable in parts.

Thank you for your review.
We are sorry to hear this.
Within the product information on the website we do confirm that these books are created from the Telegraph scan archive and in some instances there will be blemishes and the reproduction quality may not be as clear or precise vs copying direct from the actual paper itself.
Your review has been passed to a Customer Service and a Representative will be in contact shortly to obtain photos and hopefully resolve this for you.

A great gift for my Everton mad fiancé. He loved looking down memory lane via the newspaper cuttings and remembering being there. He also loved the personalisation it made it an even more special gift. Well worth the money and not overly expensive.
