Message in a Bottle personalised children adventure book in German or English!

Recommended Posts



We have just hit our goal on Kickstarter (101%!) and now have added a German version of this very lovely uniquely personalised book!


Please back us on Kickstarter and get your book with 30% discount!






It is a magical adventure book created and illustrated by me and written by Tom Percival. The story is about Kiki, a little bird, who finds a message in a bottle on the other side of the world. She then sets off on an adventure to deliver your personal, heartfelt words to the child you love.






Message in a Bottle is different from all other personalised books for a number of reasons:


  • There is no child character drawn anywhere in it. 
  • It is not just about the child but also the giver of the book. The story bonds you and the child through the unfolding mystery of the secret message.
  • It has a very natural feel: it is a great adventure built around universal themes of friendship, self-confidence, trust, persistence, and curiosity; with discreet but powerful elements of personalisation
  • The educational aspect is exceptionally strong thanks to an accompanying interactive online learning portal: Kiki’s Kids Club






We have been getting a lot of positive feedback and have also been privileged to have a Book Launch Team helping us to shape the book and spread the word around. Some of them have shared their experience about the book and process of creating it in their blog posts:


‘My boys LOVE seeing their own names in a book. What child doesn’t?’ Expat Life with a Double Buggy 
‘I just knew I wanted to be involved’ Odd Socks and Lollipops
‘We are proud to support Message in a Bottle’ The Mad House of Cats and Babies
‘This is one of the best children’s books I have ever seen!’ Adventures with J
‘Kiki has become a much loved character in our house’ The Parenting Jungle
How can you not love Kiki? Virtually All Sorts
‘I adore the main character Kiki – do you know which bird she is?’ Find out on Diary of an Imperfect Mum
‘I’ve really enjoyed watching the book evolve and I am really excited to own my own.’ Two Tiny Hands






This is our first book that has been so far fully self-funded and we are extremely excited to be launching it in the UK and European market in August! Please back us on Kickstarter and get your book with 30% discount!

    • Hallo, Ich bin Nanny in NW3 und suche ab September eine neue Familie für 2 Vormittage die Woche. Am liebsten würde ich auf ein Baby aufpassen, 0-6 Monate. Habe 7 Jahre Erfahrung mit Kindern ab der Geburt, Erste Hilfe, Führungszeugnis und Referenzen.  Alternativ würde ich auch gerne wieder als PA arbeiten.  Bei Interesse schickt mir bitte eine private Nachricht. Jo 
    • Vermutung, es geht um das beide typische Oppositionsparteien sind, die alles fordern koennen. Und das sind die Gruenen eben nicht und ist auch nicht damit nachgewiesen, das man das einfach mal behauptet, weil man eben alles was nicht ins eigene Weltbild passt erstmal runter macht :Weltfremd, nicht durchsetzbar. Da hoert man ganz klar die Stimme des Meisters raus. Lindner, da soll man erstmal die Fachleute ranlassen.
    • Da ist ja nicht viel zuverstehen, man kann natuerlich auch sagen Aepfel sind gleich Birnen, naehmlich Obst. Die FDP moechte auch gerne wieder an den Futtertrog, es ist so dennoch etwas anderes, ob man Oppositionspartei mit Aussicht Regierungspartei zuwerden ist oder eben Oppositionspartei bleibt.
