Pat WeaverTrustpilot product review 1 star rating23 Nov 2020

It tells the story of the child going to a build a bear store and choosing a bear, stuffing it dressing it etc. All pretty pointless without the bear, so a complete waste of money. I even looked at buying the bear ready made, but the story then doesn't make sense. Not worth the money and an expensive mistake.

Louise Trustpilot product review 1 star rating 22 Oct 2021

Poor quality

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.
