        I've never gotten a gift that received so many comments before. It wowed all my friends and made them ask where they too could get one made to give as a gift. I'm absolutely in love and plan on getting another story done soon.

        I got this for my niece and upon opening it the instructions left a little question. Not really clear and wished that more could be added to the story. Overall I think she will enjoy it though.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Always good delivery.

              Comments about PERSONALIZED CLASSICS:

              It's a really nice idea they have. Cover looks great and the ability to add a personalized intro is very nice.

              However, at least for the personalized Dracula, the title character name substitution doesn't work out all that well. Instead of replacing "Dracula" with our character name they only replaced Dracula's first name, so the personalization only shows up when someone refers to "Count xxxx Dracula," which isn't all that often and isn't all that interesting either. Would much rather see them replace the name "Dracula" with our personalized name. Would've worked MUCH better.

              Can't say I'd recommend it.
