    I have ordered your two books for my grandson for Christmas and paid by PayPal. But I haven’t received any confirmation of the order and there was nowhere at the checkout to put any of my details. Has the order gone through, when can I expect delivery? Please reply, I don’t know how else to contact you.

    Dear Alastair,
    I’ve just order your two book bundle and the micro adventures for my godson, but couldn’t add them to the same basket. Could you please send them in the same package? Would be great if you could write a short message in the books for my godson (Wallace). Many thanks and Merry Christmas, Robert Webb
