Your child takes the starring role in this fun rhyming tale from the night before Christmas.

Hand-drawn illustrations on every page
Available in softback, hardback or classic hardback
Add a luxury gift box for a thoughtful finishing touch
In this funny and charming tale, it’s Christmas Eve and every child is leaving scrumptious mince pies for Santa as he makes his way around the world, delivering presents for good boys and girls. However, Santa has eaten one pie too many and his growing tummy causes him to get stuck in the chimney!
Luckily your child is on hand, taking on the role of the heroic dog who helps free Santa! Written in jolly rhyming verse, your child plays a starring role in our personalized Santa story book with their name throughout the story and sprinkled across the colorful illustrations. For a special keepsake, the hardcover edition comes with your little one’s name embossed in gold. With three fantastic covers to choose from, you’ll be able to create the perfect gift in time for Christmas.
How to Personalize
Personalize your book with any name up to 12 characters, which will be printed on the cover and featured throughout the book in the story and illustrations. Add a personal message of two lines, up to 40 characters per line, which will appear on the title page.
There are three cover options to choose from: The 11 x 8″ softback and hardback are available in the standard cover. The 11 x 8″ classic hardback is bound in a premium hardcover with gold lettering. Why not add a luxury gift box for a thoughtful finishing touch?
Check your personalization: accents and other symbols cannot be used unless otherwise stated.

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.

Kate Derbyshire13 October
A great story, and even better when you can put a name in it.
Basic book, basic personalisation. Not great value for money

This is a lovely book for Christmas and I hope my 3 year old Grandson will enjoy it.
I brought this for my daughter her name was printed throughout and a lovely story.I had the gift box which made it more special and can be kept in it for keeps.
Not only the quality of the product but the superb customer service. The accessibility, the care and promptness I experienced with Yvette is laudable. Thank you Yvette, I am happy you replied to my inquiry. I would use and recommend the company In The Book without hesitation.

If you've seen or used a Haynes car…
If you've seen or used a Haynes car manual, then you'll appreciate the humour im this one!! A great gift for any car person/people, who've just got married or not!!
Well worth it as a present, as it is quite funny......or at least the parts that I quickly read before wrapping it up as a present. It was delivered quickly, within a few days too.

A great gift idea
Simple and easy to set up. Great quality product and arrived on time. A perfect little gift to give, recommend.
Smaller than a Hayes manual
Lovely book. Only personalised on the front cover & on one page inside.
A smaller size than the original Haynes manual. It’s ok for the money. Nice enough gift
