Our Best-selling Personalised Book "When Emma Grows Up"
Now Available from Dad's Point of View
Any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad. Therefore, we have created a special and unique personalised children's book for those with everlasting bonds - dads and their little ones.
We may have put mums front and centre in the past, but dads – you were in our minds all along. After having sold more than 500,000 "When Emma Grows Up" personalised children's books worldwide and receiving nearly the same number of questions like Michael's here: "I was trying to create a personalised book for me and my son, but how do I change it to Dad and customize him? I only see how to customize Mum," we swiftly jumped on a mission to bring you “When Emma Grows Up – Daddy Edition" #daddyedition.
As a team of attentive and creative souls, we always strive to deliver our best and we wouldn't settle for anything less than the equivalents of the overwhelming encouraging comments from mums, such as: "[My son and daughter] were mesmerized, and over the course of a day, they must have asked me to read their stories at least half a dozen times. It melted my heart!"
The whole creative process has therefore indeed been a wild ride. Are you ready for a short tour of how we adapted the personalised children's book for dads and their little ones? Then buckle up! To begin with, all texts had to be switched to dad mode. You know how dads are – tough on the outside and gentle on the inside, and most importantly they tell things, well, differently than mums do. The most frequently pondered question was whether or not certain lines were something dads would say. And who better to ask than the author himself, who is also a dad to a 7-year-old girl? And of course, he had the help of a few other Hooray Heroes too. Reading, rereading, correcting, swapping words and rhymes, changing the word order and bam, it was a wrap.
No, unfortunately not a chicken wrap and certainly not an overall personalised-children's-book-Daddy-Edition wrap. Dad's version of the book wouldn't exactly make sense without dad’s portrayal, would it? Check out the illustrations below to see how the shape of dad’s face and his hair styles and colours, complete with facial hair – to name just a few of his features – came to life.
If you thought we hadn't thought of dad’s clothes, footwear, the look in his eyes and his overall quirkiness, well, you thought wrong. Just wait until you see for yourself!
