About Us

It was a cold, frosty January. Christmas had just come to an end, and children everywhere were happily playing on their new, shiny iPads.

We sat by the window, looking down at our straining belt buckles, regretting that third helping of trifle the week before. Just then, we were struck by an idea.

How can we encourage children to put down their iPads and have more of the wonderful memories we had when we were little. Memories of getting lost in a book or being read to by the dim glow of a bedside lamp.


This sparked our passion to write a book that would help children rediscover the joys of reading. Not only that, but it was going to transport them into the story; because they would become the book’s kind and helpful hero.

With that, we went and got the last of the mince pies from the cupboard and set to work creating what would eventually become the "My Magic Name" personalised children's book. We hope you and your child, nephews or nieces; grandchildren or godchildren; will treasure it for years and years.

The My Magic Name Book



Our personalised children's books are handmade in the UK using the highest quality environmentally friendly paper, inks and hand binding tools.

Each beautiful book is custom made to order and is totally unique as every rhyming story and illustration is based purely on the letters of the child's name. It's what makes bedtimes super dooper fun!

The books make a perfect keepsake gift for children. An amazing unique gift for Birthdays, Christenings, and of course Christmas.

"We purchased this book for my cousins little boys christening. They absolutely loved it. It's very well made, has beautiful illustrations and we could add a personal message inside the book, we added the date of the christening so it can be remembered for years to come. Would recommend the hardback as that's what we got and its looks amazing. A superb keepsake gift. Thanks"

Very special item, very good service."

"The book was far superior to what I had imagined. I expected a storybook with my granddaughter's name thrown in here and there, but it was much better than that. The letters of her name were cleverly crafted to be part of the story, all written in verse and set in bright, lively illustrations. It's something she will love now, and keep for years to come."
