Great Book!!!

Lisette C. Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 30 Nov 2020

This gift is absolutely beautiful!!!

Danielle Perdue Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 Oct 2020

I agree with others that the binding makes you feel like it is easy to fall apart. I also agree with others about the pages being a bit frail. However, it's BEAUTIFUL! The binding is what it is, but the pages are from the newspaper so it gives it a better feel than an actual book. The book is much larger than I expected and although it is a bit cumbersome, it makes the content all the more exciting. It needs to be large so you can read the print. The book includes Kobe's early days, his retirement, the crash, and his legacy from the words of his close friends. It's beautiful. I'm actually disappointed that I have to give it away because I bought it as a Christmas gift for a friend. It will take them a long time to read through all of it and it is a pleasant walk down memory lane. I like this book option because I was going to get them a plaque but then they would be forced to look a Kobe everyday which may be rough. This is a nice gift for them to have when they have their friends over and want to reminisce about Kobe. Rest in Power, Mamba.

Overall a great product. As some have mentioned pages are a little thinner than would like. However, if you are a Kobe fan, a great idea. Loved the embossing on the outside. Made for a great graduation present. Thank you

DONT DO BUILD A BEAR U ONLY THE BOOK!

DONT DO BUILD A BEAR U ONLY THE BOOK!! SCAM wasted 28 pound on this for my sons birthday very disappointed and angry. Would not recommend to anyone. Very arrogant on the phone when calling to ask about the item. And email reply wasn't any better. Save your money and either build a bear on the website or go elsewhere like etsy or not on the highstreet. If i could minuses stars I would as even 1 is to much

CHRISTINA MCCARTHY Trustpilot product review 3 star rating 20 Apr 2021

The book itself is absolutely beautiful…

The book itself is absolutely beautiful and wonderfully illustrated. I couldn’t upload a photo onto the website, it kept sticking, so I ordered the book on a bank holiday Friday evening and it was confirmed at 2000h same night. I e mailed in the book with a photo attached the following morning Saturday at 0730h and asked if anything could possibly be done to attach it. I received a reply that it was too late, already in production, nothing could be done. In 12hrs ? I was really disappointed - I wish I had contacted CS before placing my original order. Also I assumed Alice would somehow be woven into the stories as advertised “in the books” other stories but The Ultimate Princess Collection does not offer this. Your child’s name appears on the top of each page but they are actually not IN the stories. If I ordered again I would be much more aware of what is actually on offer. In The Book does not mean IN every story, so read carefully before ordering as I’m sad to say I didn’t do.

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear this.

    Once a customer has confirmed their order, it is not always possible to add/amend personalisation, as our Production Team are currently working 24 hours a day to keep up with the demand on orders and a photo does have to be uploaded at the time of ordering. With your order, unfortunately your book has already been printed and therefore amendments could not be made, which we do apologise for.

    In regards to the Child’s name throughout the book, unfortunately this is not possible with every book that we sell, however we do make it clear within the product information. With the book that you have ordered, we do confirm that your child’s name will appear on the cover and on each page. We do apologise if this information was missed at the time of ordering.

    As a gesture, we have applied a 10% discount to your order, which has been refunded to you. We hope will help towards rectify your dissatisfaction.

    Please do accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused.

    Kind Regards,
    The In The Book Team

Michael Kaye Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 19 Apr 2021

A great cover and fronts piece.

A great cover and fronts piece. However, Some of the early pages were unreadable even with glasses and a magnifying glass in use. Some of the pages of the 1960s were unreadable as well, and one was even shown to be torn and disheveled as if lifted from a dustbin.

Gemma Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 19 Apr 2021

Absolutely brilliant company
