I wish that the main character was not a dog-a child or an elf would have been better. It was an original story, which I was looking for, so kudos to you for having one. Pricey, but a good keepsake.

I ordered this personalised book for my Granddaughter. A third into the book the name changed to that of her dog which was a bit confusing. I was told that the story is told through the eyes of the dog but this is not made clear when ordering.

Love love love my Christmas books. The kids are going to be thrilled to see their names in the book.
Ordered and paid for a book for my mother, promised delivery was july 16-21. Today is the 26th and your website has no info on my order, nothing, and obviously no delivery. Yet, my bank account clearly shows a $99.98 payment to inthebook on july 7, 2021. Hello?

Unacceptable delivery length especially for paid delivery
I purchased 2 baby books on 05/07/2021 and paid £4.99 for the delivery. The delivery suppose to arrive between 7 and 9 of July, 2021. I bought these books for my pregnant wife birthday on the 13/07/2021. I received the item on 22/07/2021 which already way passed my wife birthday. My worst online shopping experience ever!
