In this funny and charming tale, it’s Christmas Eve and every child is leaving scrumptious mince pies for Santa as he makes his way around the world, delivering presents for good boys and girls. However, Santa has eaten one pie too many and his growing tummy causes him to get stuck in the chimney!
Luckily your child is on hand, taking on the role of the heroic dog who helps free Santa! Written in jolly rhyming verse, your child plays a starring role in our personalised Santa storybook with their name throughout the story and sprinkled across the colourful illustrations. You’ll be able to create the perfect gift in time for Christmas!

I wish that the main character was not a dog-a child or an elf would have been better. It was an original story, which I was looking for, so kudos to you for having one. Pricey, but a good keepsake.

I ordered this personalised book for my Granddaughter. A third into the book the name changed to that of her dog which was a bit confusing. I was told that the story is told through the eyes of the dog but this is not made clear when ordering.

Order not received
Order not received, so chased up the day after it should have been delivered. Got a reply 3 days later saying "due to a technical issue, your order failed to make our internal system for processing". Customer service team offered to urgently print the book but couldn't say how long this would take or how quick the delivery would be. Totally missed the birthday.

This is the most beautiful book
This is the most beautiful book for princesses everywhere. 100% recommend . High quality and they (Laura) emailed to say it would be late but it still arrived in what I thought was great time scale. They keep you up to date totally hassle free. Normally buy grandchildren’s books from wonderbly but I will now be changing to this site, over the moon only mistake I made was I should have got it sent straight to Australia for grandaughter but been first order wanted to see book for myself - perfect in every page will be ordering more very soon for Xmas
