Explore the whole book! Start by adding a child.
How is the book personalized?
Add a child’s name and character. Then add 4 to 7 family members or friends to come to their party! Each one will come dressed up as a different comical character, from a dancing octopus to an easily-startled robot.
What’s the story?
It's supposed to be the perfectly planned party – but when all of the child's guests turn up in costume, everything that can go wrong... does! Does it matter? Not at all! Because the most important thing is that everyone a child loves is together, to share their big day.
Size & quality
Each book is A4 sized (11.9 inches x 8.6 inches) and available in super-sturdy hardback and our softcover classic. It’s printed on thick, sumptuous paper that’s partly recycled (FSC-certified), to last for many brilliant birthdays to come!
The ultimate personalized birthday gift
A truly unique birthday gift that’ll inspire ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ on the day, and become a lasting memento for years to come. Gather all a child’s favorite relatives, friends (and even heroes!) in one place, whether they can be there to celebrate their big day or not.
Imagining Nanny Mabel as a clumsy dragon had my little one giggling nonstop. This story is disastrously funny.
Things often can and do go wrong at my children’s birthday parties. This is the perfectly hilarious story that reminds kids their friends and family love them no matter what!
What age is the book for?
We wrote our bonkers personalized birthday book with ages 3 to 6 in mind. But really, it makes a magical birthday book for kids of any age!
How does the family feature in the story?
Add the names of 4 to 7 family members or friends (or a child’s heroes!). Each guest gets their own comical fancy dress costume. So Dad could be the dancing octopus, or Auntie Mabel could be the clumsy elephant. In the story, a child gets a series of letters from each of their family members letting them know what they’re coming to party dressed as – but also hinting that something could go disastrously wrong! In the end, it doesn’t matter because they realise they’re all there together to share the special day.
How can I personalise the book?
• Child’s first name: your child's name will appear on every page of the story – as well as the fantastically festive front cover!
• Child’s adventurer: we’ve designed six characters to choose from, for both boy and girl. Select their gender, then choose from a selection of natural hair and skin tone options.
• Family members or friends: add the names of 4 to 7 family members or friends, and choose the character you’d like them to be.
• Your personalized dedication message: Make your gift even more stupendous with a personalized dedication, printed at the front of the book for free. We’ll print up to 400 characters and 10 lines.
What makes this such a special birthday gift?
Firstly, it’s a story that no other child in the whole wide world will have! The personalized cover alone is sure to draw gasps of amazement from the birthday girl or boy when it’s unwrapped. By adding family members to the story, you can ensure that everyone child loves is there to celebrate – even if they can’t be with them in person!
Do you have any other birthday books?
Absolutely! If you’re looking for a birthday book for a baby or toddler (age 0 to 3), might we recommend Happy Birthday To You? It’s a read-aloud rhyming story full of animal friends, that each begin with a letter of the child’s name! Or for something more adventurous, why not try The Birthday Thief? It’s a stupendously personalized birthday book, totally customised around a child’s name and date of birth. But really, any of our children’s books make the perfect personalized birthday gift!
