Hooray Heroes personalised children’s books

Personalisation is the buzzword around here. Each book in our collection enables you to personalise the hero of the story – the child you want to give the book to. The first steps are to choose your hero's gender, give them a name and design their overall appearance: choose the hair colour and style, the eye colour, the skin tone - you can even add freckles or glasses. There are as many possibilities as there are children in the whole world.

We’ve taken the concept of personalisation to a whole new level. Yes. You can choose everything that defines the hero of the story, and in a couple of our books you can even define other characters like Mum, Dad and even a little brother or sister. Check out our bestseller ‘When Emily Grows Up’ in which you can choose 10 stories in the form of poems from a rich selection. So, what will your little one be when he grows up? Will he be a firefighter? Or a poet? Maybe he’ll be an astronaut or a professor. Oh – did we mention he can be a racing car driver too? So many great choices!

Gift giving, especially to a child, is very personal and special. For that reason, we’ve made it possible for you to include a heartfelt dedication that appears on the first page of the book, where it will remain forever - and in the child’s heart too, for that matter. Are you one of the not-so-poetic-at-heart? Never fear! We can also give you some suggestions as you go about personalising a book for your young hero. Not only is it free of charge, but so simple to do. Need more advice? Hooray Heroes are here to help!

We have a couple of gems on our shelves just for you. We’re sure you can find something in our collection that will greatly appeal. Is your Sophie a true adventurer who loves hunting for treasure? Does your Jacob daydream of what he’ll be when he grows up? Or are you just looking for that perfect and most considerate of gifts? Hooray Heroes has something for everyone. And ... it’s so wonderfully personalised. What a mind-boggling idea!

Our books will melt the hearts of even the biggest grumps. And for those who say they NEVER shed a tear ... We’ll say just one thing: ‘Never say never.’

Make your child a hero of the story

Our personalisation process is, well, easy-peasy. But let us walk you through it so you can read us like an open book. Remember: no two books are alike – one version is for Otis, the other for Archer, and Gwennie's book looks nothing like Isabella's. But as the writer, editor and all-round creator of your own personalised book, you do have to take extra care that Evie doesn’t become Eve, or that Harry doesn’t become Barry. ‘Double check’ is a Hooray Heroes mantra.
