The recipient’s name, with a length of up to 12 characters, can be added to the front cover, and a message of up to 80 characters over 2 lines on the title page for an extra special touch.
Don’t include the ‘s after the name, as this is printed as standard. Only enter the Name you wish to be printed on the book. Check your personalization: accents and other symbols cannot be used unless otherwise stated.

Great story, plenty of pages, and rhyming throughout. Makes a lively gift and I know my three year old granddaughter , who is pirate mad,
will be thrilled with this especially as her name character is constantly mentioned in the swashbuckling take. Highly recommended

A fantastic book for my 4 year old Grandson. The story was great and it mentioned his name throughout the book.

Really good, easy to make, and arrives in good time. Only thing to improve the service would be to make the book available in different sizes for different prices
Rosie19 Dec 2019
Plenty of opportunities for child's name to be added to story and pictures. I like that the story rhymes. I think my 3 year old grandson will love his pressie so well worth the cost.
A beautiful book with original illustrations delivered promptly - just what I had been hoping for.

Dinosaur book review
Really pleased with the personalised dinosaur book I had for my 1yr old neighbour! It’s so colourful and having his name everywhere possible is absolutely brilliant. I’m sure he will love it for many years to come.

I bought 2 books for my grandchildren…
I bought 2 books for my grandchildren which I am delighted with. I love the personalisation of them. I knew they were going to be personalised but not to the extent that they were with their names on every page. The quality of the books is great as well. Each page is a lovely quality and hopefully childproof!! I received them very quickly in the post as well. I had both of them within 10 days and that included Easter and a weekend. Many thanks

Nice product but too late
The product is nice but the book arrived several days after the last delivery date it was supposed to (and without an apology or warning), so I missed occasion, despite having ordered it in plenty of time.

Great book for a football fanatic!!
I love this book I've bought for my husband's 60th later this year who is Newcastle United mad!!!! My only criticism would be that when I placed my order and wrote what I wanted printed I tried to place it so it would be central, but, when it came one of the lines wasn't, thankfully it still looks ok but as a company I thought you would of automatically centralised the printing especially for the price! I bought the most expensive one saying as it's for a special birthday. Good quick service and well packaged though.
