    The Christmas Wish and Ruby & Skinny Monkey were very excited because mummy was taking them to town on the bus where they would see the huge Christmas tree and the beautiful Christmas lights.

    Skinny monkey and Ruby couldn’t have even imagined the adventure that was about to begin.

    The Christmas Wish is a delightful Christmas story that will enchant all those good little children who often put others first, it also shows us how Father Christmas is always watching to see who to put on the good list.

      What a really lovely and heartening story. Fantastic Christmas Book. My son loves it.

      Doing the right thing and thinking of others before yourself. There couldn’t be a nicer Christmas wish. My 7 year old was in tears and then happy. Something very positive came out of reading this book. 👍🏻

      Two weeks ago, I won a competition to have a book personalised for my 4 year old Son, Zephyr. For a child with an unusual name he was SUPER, DUPER excited to read his own name and see his picture in a book.

      Zephyr was excited he had post to open. He was excited to see it was a book.
      I pointed to his name and said, “what does this say?” He spelled out his name and shouted, “Zephyr! It’s about me!!!”
      He was so excited, and then more so when he opened the book to see his photo.

      Zephyr has an unusual name, so has never seen anything with his name on before, so this alone kept him enthralled throughout.
      He was very worried about Skinny Monkey when he fell out of the bag. He was sad for Zephyr because he lost his toy, but was very happy again when the two were reunited thanks to the help of the animals and Father Christmas.

      I asked Zephyr about his favourite part of the book. He said, “when Skinny Monkey got home”.

      Thanks very much to Mike Molloy for this opportunity.
      Long may Zephs 💗 of 📚 continue.

      Many Thanks

      Please pass on my huge thanks to Rubys Books and Mike Molloy for the wonderful book which arrived today. I am over the moon with it, such a lovely story and to have my granddaughters name printed throughout incorporating her into the story line is fabulous, I cannot express my gratitude enough for this wonderful prize and I will look forward to reading it to her over Christmas. I have posted on Facebook and tagged yourselves, Rubys Books and Mike Molloy Author on the photo.

      A beautiful story in its own right, but having the opportunity to have the book in my Grand-daughters name and with hair colour and eyes to match hers made the book all the more special. She was thrilled to see her name in print, was a little nervous as the story progressed but loved the ending (although we are now scouring charity shops for a monkey to look after !!!). Cannot recommend highly enough.

      A lovely personalised book
      I got this for my 5 year old daughter. I know it is not Christmas yet, but she loves the book, especially as she features in it and it has her photo in it! She is learning to read and loved going through picking out words she knew. The book is great quality with colourful illustrations and a lovely story.

      Perfect Christmas Gift
      Absolutely beautifully written personalised Christmas book, with a very touching and heartfelt story incorporating the child’s name and involving them in the storyline. Wonderful illustrations and the perfect gift for Christmas. Cannot wait to read it to my daughter. Highly recommended!

      Appealing and colourfully illustrated reading with clear varied font
      A delightful story, in a series, written about the friendship between Ruby and her very special toy monkey. These beautifully illustrated stories can be personalised with a Grandson or Granddaughter taking the place of Ruby – a photograph can be sent to be included on the inside of the front cover and the completed story is then posted to the named recipient – all very special to the individual. The Skinny Monkey stories join the already much enjoyed and hilarious Nana Troll stories.
