  1. Serena Hassan (verified owner)

    This book has been a big success in our house. My 5 year old loves the story and found the illustrations captivating. The story is heartwarming and a brilliant surprise to find her name actually in the book! Such a clever ideal! Very special! I have no reason not to give it 5stars!

  2. Kay Seward (verified owner)

    The book is beautiful ! Really well made .
    First order was late due to problems with Royal Mail delivery to NZ . There was no hesitation in printing another one and sending by courier . Outstanding service .

There are 7 personalisations that need to be filled in for “The Birthday BOO!”

GENDER – Select Girl or Boy.

FIRST NAME – The child’s first name that the book is for. This name appears on the cover, spine and throughout the story. You have a maximum of 12 characters for this. (If you have a name longer than 12 characters, contact us as we may be able to customise the book for you).

LAST NAME – The child’s surname that the book is for. This name only appears on one page. You have a maximum of 20 characters for this. (If you have a name longer than 20 characters, contact us as we may be able to customise the book for you).

BIRTHDAY – Click on the Birthday field and a pop up calendar will appear. Select the child’s Date of Birth from the calendar.

AGE – This will be automatically filled in for you from your DOB calendar selection. (The year of birth is not used in the book but only to calculate the child’s age. If the child’s birthday has already passed just adjust the year of birth to calculate the age correctly).

FAVOURITE GIFT – A chance to personalise the story with a gift the child really wants! If you’re not sure, we have provided some popular suggestions in the drop-down menu. To write your own select ‘Custom Gift’ from the drop down menu and fill in the ‘Custom Gift’ field which will then appear below (maximum 30 characters).

Please note – When adding a Custom Gift, you are completing the sentence “They want…”. So for best results you may need to add an ‘a’, ‘an’ or ‘the’ in front of your chosen gift. Please check that autocorrect doesn’t unnecessarily capitalise the ‘a’ or gift (unless it is a brand name e.g. Lego).

FAVOURITE FOOD – A chance to personalise the story with the child’s favourite food! If you’re not sure, we have provided some popular suggestions in the drop-down menu. To write your own select ‘Custom Food’ from the drop down menu and fill in the ‘Custom Food’ field which will then appear below (maximum 30 characters).

Please note – When adding a Custom Food, you are completing the sentence “They ate…” so it works well to add one long Custom Food dish (e.g. Grandma’s shepherd’s pie) or 2 Custom Foods (e.g. strawberries and cream’). Please check that autocorrect doesn’t unnecessarily capitalise your Custom Food (unless it is a brand name e.g. Haribos).

DEDICATION – (optional) We provide a personalised, poetic dedication for your book, but you may like to add to this with your own special words. (You can then add up to 148 characters, over 7 lines).

PREVIEW MY BOOKWhen you click on this button, a preview of your whole book, complete with your personalisations and dedication (if written), will pop up. (All starred* personalisation fields must be completed before you can view your preview).
