Star in a unique version of a classic novel!
With the Personalized Classics Gift Box, you can give a friend or relative the gift of stardom. This amazing gift allows the recipient to customize their very own bound-and-printed copy of a famous novel. They get to rename key cast members, add their name as a second author, and in some cases even alter the title!
In our example pictured below, the star-crossed lovers Romeo & Juliet have been replaced with Pat & Vanna (because who doesn't love Wheel of Fortune?!).
How it works: It's as easy as 1-2-3
The Personalized Classics Gift Box contains everything the recipient needs to customize a unique copy of a classic novel.
Once they receive the box, they can either fill out and mail in the included registration certificate or they can fill out a form online. A few weeks later, they'll receive a paperback version of the novel with the changes they requested. It's simple and fun!
Rename the cast list of a beloved classic
Each of the Personalized Classics includes a list of cast members that can be renamed.
In Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, for example, you can change up to six cast members. If you change Alice to Blanche, even the title of the book will change (i.e. Blanche's Adventures in Wonderland)!
We must admit that it's great fun to see, "O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?", become "O Pat, Pat, wherefore art thou Pat?"
Even your name can be added to the title page
When the recipient registers their gift, they are given the opportunity to add a second author to the title page. In the picture below you'll see that this one-of-a-kind edition of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was written by L. Frank Baum and Grandma and Grandpa.
It's like having your own publishing house
Your personalized copy of the classic novel features (where appropriate) a customized cover, spine, and title page.

Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Can I change the names to anything I want?
Answer: Yes. If you want to change Romeo and Juliet to Becks and Posh, go for it. There are no restrictions. However, if you change the gender of a name, please note that this could get confusing for the reader as the pronouns that reference those characters will not change. So, Alice will still be referred to as "her" and "she" even if you change her name to "Gordon".
Question: Does the recipient have to pay anything to register and receive their book?
Answer: Nope! Everything (including printing and postage) is included in the cost of the Personalized Classics Gift Box.
Question: How long does it take after registration for the recipient to receive their bound-and-printed copy?
Answer: At maximum, it will take 28 days.
Question: So do I pick the new cast members at the time of purchase?
Answer: No. The gift box includes instructions and a registration code for creating the customized copy. You could keep the gift for yourself or give it to a friend or relative. Whomever registers the gift (either by mail or online) will customize and receive the paperback copy of the book.
