TICKLED MOON

Tickled Moon creates and publishes personalised children’s books – with original, fun personalisations and engaging, rhyming stories. 

Based in Sussex, England, the company was set up in 2019 by actors and filmmakers, Alison Reddihough and Simon Roberts to create ‘personalised books with a BIG heart’. 

They have released 6 personalised picture books so far – The Longest Cuddle in the World” and “The Joyful Adventures” (both for 2 names), “What’s That??!!” (for 1-4 names), a birthday story “The Birthday BOO!” (also adapted for twins) and 2 Christmas stories – “The Christmas Wrapper” and “The Christmas BOO!”.

They have also ventured into personalised gifts with “The Family Bus” – a personalised, poetry print and a seasonal, personalised Calendar.

All their books are written by Alison Reddihough, with illustrations by Jodie Wonford.
