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.
