It is a one-of-a- kind book. Definitely marks which birthday it is and who is the birthday boy. A very memorable keepsake for family.

I bought this as a first birthday present. The quality of the book was good and it was a lovely idea however I didn't realise that the number of objects on each page is the same as the age of the recipient. So for a one year old there was only 1 of each thing which didn't make sense with the stories. Such a shame! Would be much better to have different numbers or to make this clearer in the description.

Am really pleased with the book and am looking forward to giving it for a First Birthday present. Bright illustrations and catchy rhymes. Was pleasantly surprised to find the child's name printed on each page too (perhaps I'd missed that bit!).

Really nice idea for a young child's birthday to help them learn too! Arrived really quick and a good quality, colourful and detailed book which I will purchase again for others. Not yet given it to he birthday boy but know he will love it when I do.

I have ordered these Birthday Counting Books for my granddaughter since the age of three. She enjoys them so much that she asked for a book at the age of 4 and 5, which I have ordered for her. She will be 5 soon and I'm sure she'll enjoy this book as much as she did the first two.
very happy with the unicorn poo book! It was a gift for a 7 year old who has found great enjoyment with her new book. Lots of things to look out for and having her name to find on each page has made it all the more special. Very happy over-all

When I first tried to place my order…
When I first tried to place my order for Swallows and Amazon personalised hardback the website would not allow me to enter my message. I telephoned and was told by a very helpful lady who I think her name was Sandra told me it was a technical problem and she would get back to me when it was resolved. I was amazed that at 9am the next morning she called me to say all was now fixed.The customer service was great and when the book was received it was really good quality. Very impressed and would recommend.

Amazing books! Purchased as Birthday gifts for 3 daughters and they love them as well as their children. One daughter left to go and she is excited already for HER OWN story. Book Quality is exceptional and the service is Fantastic and cannot say enough positive regarding all 3 experiences. Highly Recommend.

Promises of delivery date..completely…
Promises of delivery date..completely wrong and not so helpful folk.
Product...much, much smaller and thinner than I had believed. Not sure I would repeat my experience with company.
Lisa jane29 Sep 2020
To be honest I was slightly let down... the book basically has my nieces name on the front of the book and that's it! I thought her name would have been involved in the story?! €28 is alot of money for something I could have done myself!

Nicely presented book.
The book was presented very nicely and looks very engaging. There were two pronoun errors in the text but given that it took a while to arrive, I don't have time for an exchange before the date I intend to present the book. The receiver is not at an age where he will be bothered around pronouns too much but likely to be delighted to see himself and his beloved dog in the story. It would be good if there were a range of different adventures to choose from.

The service given and the final product…
The service provided and the final product were both fantastic. Having made an inputting error (wrong year!) at the point of order, the error was picked up, queried and corrected by a member of the In The Book team, before going to print. My parents were simply delighted with the finished product; they described it as beautifully presented, a trip down memory lane and a real keep sake to share with friends and family. Thank you In The Book.

The Haynes guide for Pensioners…
The Haynes guide for Pensioners dedicated to Arthur was a huge hit! His thank you card about it read that he had started out with chuckles and giggles but it became laugh out loud funny once he had claimed it from the rest of the family!
