Why not bring the pages of some famous books to life with these awesome World Book Day costumes for kids? See the faces of your little ones light up as they change into their favourite book character costumes, from Alice in Wonderland and Mary Poppins to Captain Hook and Sherlock Holmes. There are fairytale book character costumes
to discover too, with kings, knights, princesses, mermaids and witches!
You'll find a great selection of book character dress up ideas for girls and boys. You may find a few characters that have snuck in from the movies and cartoons too (we won't tell the teacher if you don't)! If you're not sure what to go for, have a browse for inspiration. Remember though, you can't really go wrong with a Viking or a Chocolate Factory Worker.
If you happen to BE a teacher, or a parent who just wants a reason to dress up, there are also plenty of book character costumes for adults. Heck, even if you have no excuse whatsoever for dressing up for World Book Day, who are we to stop you? Pay homage to your favourite literary personalities – those Harry Potter costumes won't wear themselves, y'know.
