I've written about personalized kids' books before, but I recently had the chance to see a personalized copy of a novel. U Star Novels personalizes romance novels and classic literature with not only the name of the star, but also friends and family members.
I chose to do Alice in Wonderland for my daughter. Her best friend became the Cheshire Cat, and her sister was the White Rabbit, among other character options. It was a great gift for her and she loved really being able to imagine herself in the story!
There are a lot of classic novels available that would be suitable for the literature buff or for kids who you're trying to interest in the class stories. If romantic and erotic novels are more your cup of tea, you can find options for women, male-female couples, and same-sex relationships. Check it out for a very unique gift!
