Kingdom Of You Personalised Book - Review & Competition



Lost My Name, the personalised children's gifts company have gone and done it again! Following on from their last release The Incredible Intergalactic Journey Home they have just released a brand new book called The Kingdom of You and it's just as good, if not better than all their previous releases! 

I was given two voucher codes to order personalised books for both Noah and Ava which I liked because it allowed me to get face to face with their ordering system and I can happily report that it was very easy (and quite enjoyable) to order from them. 
For the purpose of this review I'm going to use Ava'a book as the example as I don't want to flit between the two different books and confuse you all. 



To order Ava's book I simply headed to the Kingdom of You section of the website entered her name and gender, then selected the character I wanted to use for her. I chose the little blonde girl because although Ava has dark hair at the moment I can see strands of blonde coming through, beneath the baby hair.

Personalising doesn't end there as and the choices you make when creating the book can really change up your story. The kingdom is named after them, you can choose your cast of characters (from dinosaurs, superheroes, animals, princesses and vehicles) and pick your child's favourite mouthwatering treat (pasta, pizza, ice cream, chicken and fruit.) You can also write a personalised dedication at the back of the book which I think is a lovely touch.


The story begins with the protagonist sulking in her room, she's fed up of being told what to do and above all, she's not going to tidy her room! Let's just say, she's a bit of a monkey! Beneath all the mess a laundry genie appears and grants her three wishes, which certainly turns her frown upside down!

For her first wish she asks to become a Queen of her very own kingdom because that way nobody would be able to tell her what to do anymore. Next up she wishes for princesses because she loves them just as much as she dislikes being told what to do. 


The characters had so much fun in her very own Kingdom, surrounded by hoards of princesses that she forgets how hungry she is. With that in mind her third and final wish she asks for a monster cone of ice cream and that is what she gets, literally! An ice cream monster appears and takes over the kingdom, creating utter chaos and bedlam! After lots of protests from her citizens she comes up with a master plan, to attack the ice cream monsters weak point, it's cone! Once she's won the battle with the ice cream monster she looks around and realises that everything is such a mess and she has to clean it up, it's her mess after all. She then takes off her crown and realises that she wished things were back to normal and thankfully the genie had a secret fourth wish up his sleeve and grants it for her.



Being able to personalise the book in so many different ways is so exciting for both parents and children alike. For Ava's book I chose her kingdom to be full of princesses and I chose ice cream for her food and for Noah I chose superheroes and pasta, his two favourites! These different choices make both stories quite unique from one another, both visually and story wise.

Noah thinks it's so cool (his words, not mine!) that he's a king in his story, that his kingdom is full of superheroes and that there was a monster made from pasta! It's his favourite book at the moment and we've not put it down since it arrived. Ava on the other hand, although she's small she's already enjoying books and I know that as she gets older she will love her Kingdom of You book just as much as her brother.


Kingdom of You is so much fun and one that can be read and enjoyed for years to come. It follows your child on a wild and wonderful adventure, with lots of twists and turns, I can't recommend it enough. It's also visually stunning, have you seen the illustrations?! It's suitable for up to 10 year old's and costs a very reasonable £19.99.
