What exactly is a "personalized book"?
In our wonderful stories, your child is the main character in his or her own adventure. Each book has your child’s name, age, hometown and one to three friends. In addition, a special dedication from you is included. Children are delighted to read their own story and will want to read it again and again.

What information is needed to produce a personalized book?
When you add a book to the shopping cart, our website will prompt you for all the necessary information.For most books, we'll need to know the child's gender, first and last names, hometown, and the names of 1 to 3 friends. There are some titles that require more information (such as birthdate for the birthday books). You may also give us optional information such as age, middle name and the name the child is called (such as a nickname). If we have questions, we'll contact you to confirm your order prior to production.

Will you share my information with anyone else?
No! We value your privacy and that of the children for whom you are purchasing books. We will only use the information you provide us to fulfill your order. Occasionally, we will email you information about our new products and specials. You may opt out of these by emailing us with “unsubscribe” in the subject line.

Do I have to pay sales tax?
