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.

I ordered a newspaper for my Dad’s 80th…
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.

Book did not arrive when was advised of…
Book did not arrive when was advised of delivery timeframe. I sent email asking which courier would be delivering as was sent tracking number that did not link to any courier service or say who it would be to track! Response came 2 weeks later after book was delivered apologising for late response but she stated that it was fine because the book had been delivered!!! Shocking service, will not use the company again.

Well worth buying
The book was larger than I was led to believe. I thought I ordered A4 but it was slightly smaller than A3. It could have been my mistake. It was my understanding that it was going to contain reports about my team (Plymouth Argyle). What I found was there was also reports of different games that took place on the same day. It also included reports on rugby and cricket. They scanned the full page. I was disappointed at first, however, after reading part of the book I'm finding it very interesting. If you are a football fan and like reading other reports, then you will enjoy this book.

Have not received book yet
Have not received book yet. Original purchase said book would be dispatched 1/13 and delivery 1/15-1/17 . I called and questioned the time frame because I was willing to pay to expedite . They assured the dispatch date is not right because of their software but the shipping is correct. Still do not have it on 1/20 and will not have it in time for my Mom. They answer the phone in the UK with a NY number so ship from location is deceiving. They ship USPS partner which is slower and tracking is horrible. I had to call for tracking number, they do not update you. Customer Service is only open 8-noon ET. Really upset about this

The book was amazing (history of Leeds FC, brilliant. Unfortunately was due to arrive 7-13 and didn’t arrive until two days later. I had actually rung them to ask if could arrive by 11th. They were apologetic and refunded postage. Good gesture but present didn’t arrive for birthday.
