Have you discovered Lost My Name yet? They’re children’s book publishers with a difference, tapping into the popular personalised book market taking things far beyond just dropping a name into a standard story – the whole story is shaped by your child’s information.
The Little Girl or Boy Who Lost Their Name
Before we even get into the contents, I just have to admire the gorgeous illustrations, cool typography and lush, matt finish to this book. It’s awesome.
When you order the book, you get to set a few details about its intended recipient. There are three boy and three girl characters to choose from, and then you enter the child’s name. You then get to preview what your book will look like, and that’s when the magic happens…
The story opens with a little girl or boy, as set by you, who has lost their name and must embark on a quest to find it. Next, we follow the child as they traverse various challenging and colourful landscapes, meeting comical characters along the way.
Each A4 double page spread sees the child successfully acquire a new letter, and in the end, those letters come together to form your child’s name!
Because the books are printed to order, even if your child has an unusual name or perhaps they name has an unusual spelling, you can still get a beautiful book for them, perfectly personalised. Hyphens are accepted too.
Jay was absolutely delighted with hers and she couldn’t quite believe that their own name was being spell out. As she’s at pre-school and just getting the hang of reading, she particularly enjoyed recognising and ‘collecting’ the letters herself, and immediately wanted to read the story again.
The Incredible Intergalactic Journey Home
JD has been fascinated by space for quite some time and is impressively knowledgable on the subject, so this was the perfect choice.
This time, our hero is lost in space…what to do?
Just as with The Little Girl or Boy Who Lost Their Name, the ordering process for this book allows you to specify the child’s name and again, you get gorgeous illustrations, a fun, engaging story and personalised elements such as regular mentions of the child’s name, including in a constellation!
In this book, a key piece of information that shapes the story is the child’s address. Once defined during the ordering process, it determines where the ship will eventually land, crashing past a key landmark in their home town, before sweeping over an ariel view of their street and eventually landing at their door, complete with correct door number!
As JD loves making virtual journeys around the world using Google Earth, so he was open mouthed as he reached the last few pages, immediately recognising the maps, he couldn’t quite believe the book had been specially made to be completely personal to him.
