WORLD BOOK DAY falls on Thursday, March 5 this year, and kids are as excited about getting dressed up for the occasion as they are for Halloween.
The best World Book Day costume ideas are fun, easy for parents to put together and comfortable enough for a child to wear all day in school.
The good news is, you don't have to spend all weekend non-stop crafting to create a brilliant World Book Day outfit.
For toddlers, we'd recommend a soft or plush costume: from Peppa Pig to the Very Hungry Caterpillar, your little one will look adorable.
And age 3 or 4 is probably your last chance to dress your son up as a Gruffalo, so make the most of it.
Older school kids tend to want to put an individual touch on their World Book Day costumes, but certain authors are always a good bet: Dr. Seuss, Roald Dahl and David Walliams have plenty to choose from – and Harry Potter is a perennial favourite.
Of course World Book Day isn't just about dressing up – don't forget to use the £1 token from school to get a new book for your child.
