In the Book Review

 I've made it no secret that I absolutely LOVE a personalised gift.

That gift becomes 100% better if it is a personalised book (my love of personalisation and reading combined).

So when the lovely people at In the Book got in touch to see if I'd like to review one of their books, there was just no way that I could resist. My only problem was in choosing which book and who it was going to be given to.

What is In the Book all about?

Here's what they have to say on their site:

Make Them a Star; Put Them In The Book!

When you make your child the star of one of our books, they’re instantly captivated. Your child has a direct role in the story and is even featured in the illustrations in our personalised children’s books! Your child is woven into the magic of the story, transforming the book into a keepsake with purpose, and it’s never too early to start helping them learn their name with our personalised baby books.

Disney is timeless. From their technicolour characters and musical soundtracks we can’t help but sing along to, Disney makes dreams come true. Walt Disney once said, “If you can dream it, you can do it” and with our personalised Disney books, we’re dreaming big. There’s an adventure waiting on every page and best of all, anyone can star alongside their favourite Disney characters.

Grown-ups will find a book or a few they can thoroughly get stuck into. Our speciality books feature news from as early as 1900, either as entire birthday books filled with headlines from their lifetime or as editions covering major events and icons in history. Even our sports books are treasures to behold. From rugby, cricket, F1, Wimbledon, golf and of course, football, you can give the perfect memorabilia designed around the recipient’s favourite team or sport.

I have to agree with the sentence that Disney is timeless and in the end this is exactly what I went for, Cars to be precise. 


My nephew is obsessed so it just seemed fate when I spotted the collection of Cars books.

The process

From start to finish, purchasing a book really is simple. 

Choose the story, add a name, pop in a personalised message and if you choose to, you can also upload a photo of the child you've chosen to feature in the story.

It really is as easy as 1, 2,  3.

Watch their eyes light up with excitement...

The finished product is beautiful.

My own eyes lit up when I opened it up. 

Coming in a stylish display box (an added bonus for keeping the book safe), as soon as you see the front cover, the child's name is right there on the front. I know from experience with my own children and personalised books, the moment they see and hear their own name is truly magical.


Get the perfect unique storybook for your child!

It's books like these that can really instil a love of reading.

And not just for the child, but for whoever gets to read such a story with the recipient. The joy of seeing and hearing their reactions is just a fulfilling. 

With such a diverse range of books ready to entertain anyone from babies to grown ups, In the Book are the ideal present for just about anyone. I'm actually eyeing up a personalised copy of A Christmas Carol for myself - hint hint for any family members reading this post.

The question is which book would you choose?
