What do our customers say?

I was so impressed with the service I received from The Book Detectives. My daughter was delighted with her pack. It was a very lovely and perfect gift. I would highly recommend The Book Detectives to anyone who has book-loving children or grandchildren. I will definitely be ordering again!”

The Book Detectives has been created by Detective Lizzie, a former Primary School Teacher. Her aim is to help as many children as possible develop reading confidence so they can access the magic of reading.

Every box has been created with care. All of our packaging is recyclable and we even think you can find some creative ways to re-use your box!

For every book box we sell we make a donation to The Children’s Foundation (Reg. Charity No. 1000013) to support the amazing work they do, ‘Making Serious Stuff Fun’.
