A lovely book that I hope my nephew will treasure for years. Good quality and it's lovely to see the name go through the story. Would recommend as a great present.

Got this for a 1st Birthday and the mum thought it was lovely, especially as the child had a very unusual name, it's nice to have that printed on a object. Very good quality for the price and the story is good.

I bought this book for my nephews 2nd birthday. Although he is too young to read it himself! He will enjoy having it read to him and hearing his name throughout the story. When he gets older and learns to read it will exciting all over again to be able to read his own name in a book. This is a unique gift that will be special for years. The quality of the book is fantastic and the story is a lovely adventure. A quick and easy service, will definitely use this company again.

Pleased with quick delivery
Pleased with quick delivery, lovely story for my Great Grandson who is 2half years old. Disapointed with the actual quality overall for the price you charged, regarding the quality of the thiness of the paper. Was expecting thicker pages.

90th Birthday Gift
We bought this for a relative's 90th Birthday present who lives in the south of England and as we live in the north it was delivered directly to him. It arrived on the day of his Birthday and he was absolutely delighted with it. He wouldn't have been happier if we'd given him £1,000. Thank you so much for a unique gift

I wanted to get my daughter something
I wanted to get my daughter something special for her birthday and In The Book did not disappoint! I bought her a personalised princess book which was great because it allowed me to put a picture of her inside and a special birthday message. When it arrived it came in a keepsake Disney box. My daughter absolutely loves it!
I would highly recommend In The Book because they provide a fast delivery service and quality products.
