Do you need something silly?

World Book Day

Costumes and accessories for World Book Day dressing up in early March each year. When the school asks you to dress your child as a book character it can seem very daunting but we've got lots of costumes which are suitable and can be used at other times. Fox costumes for instance work well for Roald Dahl Day which takes place in September. Victorian costumes are good for books like The Railway Children, Five Children and It or Oliver Twist. These also come in handy for Victorian Day at school. De Seuss is hugely popular as is Alice in Wonderland.

Get involved in World Book Day, Thursday March 7th 2013 by dressing as your favourite fictional character.

We have lots of ideas, accessories and props to help you get involved and we can deliver next day if you've only just found out! Order before 3pm.
