Create your own personalised children’s book that features your child and their friends as the stars of the story…you can even include the town you live in!

When somebody in town has a mystery to be solved, who is the first to be called? Private Detective of course! Let your child examine the crime scene, find the clues and work out what has happened down at the zoo with all the missing fruit.  

1. How is this book personalised?

Simply enter your child’s name and preferred pronoun (she/he/they etc), the names of two of their friends and your town/suburb, and we’ll take care of the rest. Your child’s name will appear throughout the story, and their friends’ names will appear on one page.

2. Can I add a personalised message?

Yes. You absolutely can add a personalised message (up to 150 words) and we will include it on the inside cover. Create a truly memorable keepsake for you and your family.
