Any regular reader will know that we love books – LP loves reading stories and we read to her many times a day but always at bedtime. LP has a few personalised books that she loves and when Unique Editions got in contact to offer us the chance to review one of their personalised books I couldn’t wait to see what they had to offer.
Unique Editions not only create personalised books but also portraits, framed pictures and personalised eBooks too! Their range is vast and the choice of personalised books were fantastic, so much variety and different to other personalised books I had seen in the past. The Unique Editions books are all new stories – You won’t have read them before or even be familiar with the characters – Because your chosen child and friends/family are the characters in the story!
The Unique Editions website is split into categories by age range or you can also select books based on how many characters – One child, a child and sibling or the whole family. This level of options means that you can create a book for any family size. We chose to create and review the Amazing Family book and incorporated LP, Little Man, Hubby and I into the story. Uploading photos for each of us was easy and after placing the order a proof was sent to me swiftly to make sure I was happy with the book and photos. Before I knew it the Unique Editions book was landing on my doormat!
The Unique Editions book is paperback but with good quality glossy pages. Each page has full colour illustrations along with your family images included in the pictures. The Unique Editions Amazing Family book was a really good length and LP enjoyed it straight away. She loved that her and her brother as well as Hubby and I were included not only on the pages but also in the story – I think this helped hold LP’s interest and concentration longer than usual as the book was longer than she is used to but she happily listened to it all the way through.
The Unique Editions book tells the story of a family that happen to also be secret superheroes. At times the story is slightly Americanised but this can be forgiven as I personally am not aware of any superhero story that isn’t American! We all really enjoyed the story and it’s one that we will read regularly in the future.
