Never received. No response from customer service
Never received my product. It’s been 2 months and paid for 10 day shipping. Never received a response both when I requested the tracking number, and when I inquired about not receiving my order. They only choose to show their positive reviews. Fraud. Trust pilot has many other similar reviews to mine.

This book about animals was ordered for my niece's birthday. I think she will especially enjoy seeing her name on all of the pages.
