The sentiment is lovely, the rhyming text lots of fun and the illustrations are packed with detail. A great book to share, while the magic of personalisation will make it very special indeed."

Obviously she had a lot of attention and I didn’t want him to feel left out so the book was in his case Daddy gave the longest cuddles.

    I bought this book as my daughter is in hospital born prematurely so they can’t cuddle right now and my son at home was always so upset she’s not home so this book has helped us loads them both loads. He couldn’t believe that the book knew all our names inside. He reads to her inside hospital and we read it to him every night. it couldn’t be more perfect.

  13. Jill (verified owner)

    Absolutely beautiful book fantastic story and beautifully illustrated. My granddaughter’s face lit up when we read the names of her family members , one of our favourite books to read at bed time.

    Bought this book for our daughter and her baby boy ( our first grandchild) she was over the moon, literally with the book as was I,the fact we could add special names of family into the story means our grandson has a keepsake for ever which means so much to us as will to him as he gets older, the quality of the book and colours and pictures are superb, I will definitely be buying more from this company and recommending them to all my family and friends.

  15. Trish Louden

  16. Claire Salter

    I cannot praise the company enough.
    I saw the book and was really keen to get it as I was about to go into hospital and wanted to give something to my boys that they could look at and treasure while I was away.
    The only problem was the timeline was very tight to get it before I went to hospital.
    The people at Tickled Moon did everything they could to get the information from me and the book ready and sent in time.
    We received it before my hospital stay and my twins were delighted at the personalised book, as was I

    Very impressed. I loved the process of making the book. The website was very user friendly and the previews were great. Once ordered, the book took a reasonable amount of time to get to me in Canada and I was blown away by the product. The quality is great. The pages are thick and the story is cute. It is exactly as expected and I can’t wait to give it to my husband for his 1st father’s day.

    Beautiful book, I bought one for each of my grandchildren and they and their families love them. I shall definitely buy for other children and look forward to different publications for my grandchildrens collections

  31. Sue H (verified owner)

    I got this for my great niece who lives some distance from the rest of our family so she doesn’t get to see us that often. At the age of 3 its good to talk about family and friends so this book was perfect for us to mention those across the miles who are her family. One family member lives on the other side of the world so the page with the map on will enable her mum to show her where her uncle is. I used the dog as the other person throughout the story. It was her birthday yesterday where she received the book and her mum thought it was a lovely story and great idea.

  32. Alison Jackson (verified owner)

    I gave this book to my Granddaughter for Easter who is 3. It is absolutely beautiful and something we will treasure together. Thank you so much.

    In a word, magical!

  37. Colleen Clinton (verified owner)

    I have just received my 2 books and to say I’m thrilled is an understatement! They are absolutely beautiful. This has been the best online experience I’ve ever had. Alison has been wonderful and even picked up a mistake I made. She emailed me to check and then corrected it. It’s obvious the love that goes into every book. Thank you so much for these beautiful keepsakes.
