The Birthday Thief – A Magical Adventure Story by Wonderbly

The Birthday Thief

A stupendously personalized birthday story, that magically changes based on your child’s birth date. Huzzah!

Meet Wonderbly:

Once upon a time, not so long ago, there was a  book about a little child who lost their name. It was a stupendous hit (which took the writers by surprise). In fact, so many people loved it (and I’m talking MILLIONS of people),  they ended up starting a brand new company and named it: Lost My Name.

As time went by, and as Lost My Name grew, more books were born. Books about Journeys Home, and Magical Kingdoms, among other wondrous things.   Extraordinarily beautifully personalized, wonderfully magical books, about all sorts of things.

Because of the success of ALL of their books (and not just the first one), they realised that they needed a new name, a name that better represented the magical books that were contained within their growing catalogue. SO… Wonderbly was born. The same imaginative magical books, with a fun and exciting new name.

One of the newest books in the Wonderbly catalogue is The Birthday Thief! The Birthday Thief stars your child, and is personalized around their birth date. As always, ordering your book is easy and takes only a few short minutes. The most difficult thing is waiting for your book to arrive (which doesn’t take long – shipping is super fast)!

If you know me at all, you know that I love love love love books, and that is especially true of children’s books. Books are a huge part of my life, and I’ve done everything in my power to make sure that books are a huge part of the lives of my boys. I love personalized books because they are not only a great source of reading enjoyment, but they are treasured keepsakes that are meant to be cherished.

The Birthday Thief follows your child in a stolen birthday adventure! One second it was Hayden’s birthday, and then WHOOSH! Where did it go? His birthday is gone! Someone stole it!

Along the way in Hayden’s adventure, he meets the Moon Makers.

And he meets a Wizard.

At the end of the book, Hayden’s birthday is returned,  and his friends have arrived to help celebrate at his birthday party.

    A friend recently had a baby and instead of the cards, they asked for a childs book, addressed to the child as a better keepsake…I thought that was a wonderful idea
