Absolutely brilliant book.

I have had books similar to this in the past where you personalise the story but I was surprised and extremely pleased when I received this book. I am sure the person I bought it for will be pleased if somewhat surprised finding his name and his friends name in the book. The quality of the book was excellence with the pictures in bright colours. It looks inviting to read . I would certainly recommend this product. thank you so much.

I bought this for my six year old football mad son as a present from Santa given to him by santa at his kindergarden and he absolutely loves it. It made his day, he can't put it down, I have to read it to him every day and he is so excited - I'm really glad I bought this book.

Bought this book for my husband's 60th birthday and am delighted with it. He will love it! He himself was a world cup referee twice! Mexico 86 and Italy 90 so this book is a lovely item for him to keep, read and treasure.

My mum is the worlds biggest foot -ball and Ruby fan. She was so delighted with this gift, her excitement to see her name in a book about football was wonderful to see. To many of the spoof magazines are for men so I was delighted that this one gave me to option to include a female . she said she will treasure it for ever and be able to show it off to her gran kids, who are all football mad as well. Its 24 pages of a well scripted story in which she is the star. this is a wonderful gift and well worth its price.
Very good service, always in contact with you with good news and delays. Went the extra mile

Very disappointed with my first experience purchasing from In The Book. Both books I ordered arrived with issues - one was bound incorrectly so the spine was bent, whilst the other contained very poor quality illustrations. Even the front cover illustration (Alice in Wonderland) was blurry. Throughout the pages, printing lines are visible and most images just look pale and blurry like a bad quality VHS. Customer service replied very quickly and were helpful - sending out immediate replacements no issue. One book is fine, the other is just as poor quality so I've requested a refund as it is not gift-worthy. Hopefully this will be actioned just as quickly. A shame and I certainly wouldn't recommend.
