Your child journeys into the world by way of a Very Hungry Caterpillar!
Your child’s name appears on the cover and throughout the story
Write a special message on the title page
Hand-drawn illustrations on every page
Includes a Very Hungry Caterpillar plush toy
All presented in a 33 x 25 x 11cm luxury gift box
There is perhaps no children’s book more universally known and loved than The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and quite frankly, there is no better way to enjoy Eric Carle’s timeless classic than with our personalised Very Hungry Caterpillar gift set. Featuring the wonderfully illustrated Journey into the World story, in which your child takes the form of a caterpillar, makes new friends, eats some scrumptious food, and eventually becomes a beautiful butterfly, this bespoke set also includes a cuddly caterpillar plush toy, truly bringing the story to life like never before.
In this fully personalised book, your child is the star of the story. The text, which addresses your child directly and portrays them as a caterpillar, is built around the name you enter. This name will also feature on the cover, as well as the inside title page, next to a special message of your choosing.
How to Personalise
Personalise your book with your child’s name, which will be printed on the cover and featured throughout the book, including in the illustrations. Also add a special message of up to 80 characters and two lines, which will feature on the inside title page.
Check your personalisation: accents and other symbols cannot be used unless otherwise stated.

Bought as a gift for my 2yr old twin grandchildren and I must say it is everything I wanted as a gift and keepsake.

nice book, shame about the missing surname
the book arrived after just a few days and i was pleased with the item, the only problem with the personalised book was the surname of the person it was intended for was missing from the inside cover.

Wonderful customer service!
I has called customer service and the woman who answered was promptly and courteous. She also had a wonder British accent that made my day... The item shipped in the time frame provided on the website. I will use InTheBook again

This order took a bit longer than advertised times to arrive but I think that was due to the Covid 19 problems and changes to working practises that had to be made. We can all understand and appreciate that.
I ordered the your life as seen through the newspapers book for my mother in laws 90th birthday, black leather bound and personally engraved in gold. It shows the front page of the Mirror newspaper on the day she was born and on her birthday every year thereafter. I think the total cost was about £70. I hoped it would be really nice for her. But WOW! Its just absolutely beautiful. More than I had hoped for. My mother in law was enchanted with it. I can't think of anything I could have given her that would have been any better. A big thank you to the In The Book team. Thanks folks.

Very satisfied customer
The selection, ordering and delivery processes were all handled efficiently and helpfully. Our personalised Nursery Rhymes book will make a delightful gift for my 2 year old Great granddaughter. Well done, "in the Book".

No choice of newspaper.
Efficient service but don’t remember being able to choose a newspaper.
