bought it for my younger son , but the language was far too difficult for him, so havent read it since
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.
