Quebec – Do you know a child who dreams of becoming a hero? It's now possible, the time of a story, with personalized books I am the hero.

personalized books I am the hero, imagined and created in Quebec, are fabulous stories where fairies, pirates, ogres and dragons rub shoulders, but above all, they are books where the child is the main character. Even his name is in the title of the book; a unique copy that makes the child a hero.

The child will easily recognize himself because the character will bear his name, have the color of his eyes and his hair and he will have the same favorite color. Does the child wear glasses? So the character will have it.

How to do?
After consulting the catalog where the books, which are mainly aimed at 4 to 11 year olds, are presented with a summary, all you have to do is fill in the personalization form: name, physical characteristics, city, favorite color and names one or two family members.

The possibilities are quite varied with a range of 9 colors, 56 types of hairstyles and 5 skin tones. The buyer can even compose a dedication which will appear on page 3. All this with the aim that the child finds elements of his real world in a magnificently illustrated fantastic universe.

The personalized books were created in 2008 by Patrice Audet, director of the illustration studio The Mille-Pattes. The books, which have about thirty pages, are available in French and English, and soon in other languages. It takes about four weeks for the delivery of the book to your home. It is even possible to order from outside Canada, for a slightly higher delivery charge.

The collection I am the hero is also present on Facebook. Contests, newsletters, the opportunity to chat with the artists and lots of new things are on the agenda. For example, someone recently won a personalized book as part of the Facebook 500th fan promotion.

Become an ambassador
It is also possible to become a reseller of these personalized books by earning 5 $ each time you make a sale. All you have to do is complete the form attributing the sale to you. A simple way to help a publisher in Quebec while making a little money.

Personalized books are therefore a special gift that will not fail to amaze the child and perhaps even give him a taste for reading.
