Our goal is simple...

We want to delight children, to ignite their imaginations and inspire them to dream big! With stories written especially for and about them.

We also want children to treasure their Tailored Tales for always, even when they’re big! Which is why every book is made with lavish amounts of care and love.

Each book is crafted with meticulous attention to detail. Kirsten wouldn’t have it any other way! She is an accomplished graphic designer with an eye for detail and very high standards.

As the creator of Tailored Tales, Kirsten Friedericksen has lavished her attention not just on the delightful stories and their beautiful illustrations, but also the very paper they’re printed on.

Kirsten’s search for materials of superb quality has taken her far and wide. She uses genuine book binding materials imported from Europe that are extra strong, scuff resistant, fully recyclable, elemental chlorine free and that meet with European environmental standards.

Tailored Tales have hard covers and cardboard pages – resistant to even the most eager little hands – and the artwork is printed on beautifully textured paper.

A delight to look at
and to hold.

from photo to tailored tale ... become part of their story...
Photographs of your child and the people and pets she loves are transformed into beautiful illustrations that become part of a 100% unique Tailored Tale. Moms, dads, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, godparents and pets can be included too! Which is why every page of a Tailored Tale is filled with happiness.
