What child (or adult for that matter) doesn't like to see themselves in a story? What a wonderful and empowering idea! The stories are delightful, and my kids loved imagining themselves in the fantasy world you created.

Customer Reviews

I very rarely contact a company about something I ordered. I just have to say I was blown away by the quality of the book I ordered for my granddaughter. I had forgotten all about it when it arrived and I was just stunned how lovely it was. I cannot wait to hear her reaction when she receives it. Thank you SO much, and believe me I will order again! Keep up the good work. It's a great idea.”
- Keely's' grandmother, California

I received my order today - and I have to say that I'm really impressed! The book that I ordered for my daughter Emma's upcoming birthday is fantastic - everything I hoped for and more. :)”
- Emma's mom, Tennessee

The book is adorable and right up Catherine's alley. She always gets me to read to her when we baby-sit. She will squeak at the top of her lungs!”

Thank you for my Vivian & the Tuesday Mushroom King. It is the best book I have.”
- Vivian, age 4

We love the potty book and guess what, 1 week after she got her book she was completely potty trained. It inspired her and that's exactly what I was hoping for!!!”
- Brigitte, Louisana

Just a note to say I now have ordered two of these books for our granddaughter. They are wonderful. So well made and the quality is terrific!! She loves seeing herself in the books!!!! Thank you for the perfect gift”
- Lana, Texas

Alyssa had to bring her favorite book to school for her teacher to read since she was "star of the week" last week. Without hesitation she chose her Tuesday Mushroom King book. I was at the back of the classroom for the reading, and I wish you were there to witness the scene with me. The entire class ADORED the book! They were so excited to see their friend in the book, and they loved the story itself. Lots of oohs, ahhs and laughter. Afterwards they all crowded around to get a better look at the pictures. Alyssa mentioned that her teacher put the book beside her desk and everyone was still checking it out that entire week. The teacher liked the book too since she said there were lots of "wow" words, which is what they were talking about in writers' workshop that week. So there you go. A definite hit with the first graders in room 6.”
- Alyssa's mom, California

I am famous. My book is a best seller!”
- Caity, age 6

I bought your book for my niece's fifth birthday. While I was hesitant to purchase this book sight unseen, I thought it would be a fun gift for my niece. I'd like you to know that she got such a kick out of this book. I was on the phone when she opened the package and she giggled uncontrollably. She was so taken by her name and photo running throughout the book. She took the book to class today for show-and-tell. Her teachers and her classmate's mothers loved it. I hope you get more orders!!”
- Helen, New Jersey

Your ecards are wonderful! I've sent them to just about everyone I know and several people are already looking for just the right photo of their own children to order books of their own! I love this product. I love it, I love it, I love it!! Did I mention that I love it?”
