    This was a Christmas gift for our 10yr old grand daughter. She has always loved to write original stories, so much so, that she wants to be an author when she is older. She was super excited to receive this as a gift and is already planning her story and illustrations. Can't wait to see her hardcover book!

    Information about IlluStory
    Posted 4/8/2012

    This was an 8th birthday gift for our granddaughter, who's very much enjoyed drawing since she was a toddler, and who began writing original stories as soon as she began to read/spell. She was ecstatic when she opened IlluStory and realized that the end-product will be a hard-back book that she can keep forever. She's currently engrossed in planning the story and illustrations she'll use.

    Really Great Idea!
    Posted 3/14/2012 by Kimberlee Miceli

    I bought this as a birthday gift for my little cousin (she is turning 7 in April) and she LOVES telling stories to us all. I thought this would be the greatest gift because she loves books and she will be so proud to show Mommy & Daddy the book SHE created! Great gift idea for she has everything!
