Children and grown-ups in our community have been bustling with activity: crafting and assembling imaginative outfits for World Book Day, so we invited you to share photos of your children’s costumes.

Now, let’s take a moment to admire the creativity and effort put into these fantastic ensembles.

What is World Book Day?

World Book Day is a celebrated UK annual event dedicated to promoting the joy of reading among children. On this day, schoolchildren are given a book voucher, encouraging them to explore the vast world of literature and discover new stories that ignite their imagination and love for reading.

Harry, Hermione or Ron?

The top 5 costumes based on children’s books this year, included characters from Harry Potter (by J K Rowling), the hilarious Gangsta Granny (by David Walliams) and either Thing 1 or Thing 2, from the whimsical Cat in the Hat.  Classics such as Where’s Wally? and the Mr. Men’s Mr. Bump, still make the list in 2024
