Am writing a story 'starring' my niece as a present for her birthday.

Is there a cheap way to bind it and make it look like a book?

I am not talking about self-publishing where you have to have many copies -- just a one-off.

Go to a POD publisher like Lulu.com - you don;t have to have more than a single copy and they are not very expensive - self-publisihing no longer means having to order 500 copies.
You can download templates (which work in WOrd) and the paper quality, print quality etc is perfectly acceptable.

I use bonus print for things like that - they make a compact book for £7 which you can edit with words and personalise with pictures.

I have made several of these books and they always go down well.
