His views include the following:

Bruce Bogtrotter (Matilda by Roald Dahl) Wear school uniforms (or as much as possible) and get a big chocolate cake from the shops. Put chocolate on your baby’s shirt (and face). Voila!

Cute boy with chocolate ice cream on his face. Baby with a dirty face after eating ice cream.

Matilda (Matilda by Roald Dahl)

Put a red ribbon in your child’s hair and tie a pile of books with a wire or belt. Easy

Charlie Bucket (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl) All you need is a golden ticket to hang around your neck. Grab a large piece of yellow paper and write his own invitation to meet Willie Wonka!

Boy in clothes (David Williams) Grab a dress and a football and your son is fine.

What is World Book Day?

Sufi (BFG by Roald Dahl) Wear a pair of nightie or pajamas and make a fast dream jar using jam jar, glitter and some fairy lights.

Where is the one (Martin Handford) If you have a striped top, bubble hat and a pair of glasses, your child can spend the whole day standing around and no one will be able to find it. Don’t like

The cat in the hat (Dr. Seuss) Dress your child in black and make a long red and white hat out of paper or card. If you’re feeling extra excited, a cat’s nose and whispers painted with eyeliner will complete the look.

Bego (Alexis Deacon) If you are a person with yellow legs and T-shirts around you, then Bego may be a good option. Just dress your teen in ye
llow and make some long, floppy yellow ears out of the card.

Harry Potter (JK Rowling) You don’t always need a full on wizard Regalia to dress up as a Harry Potter. He spent most of his childhood in Mughal dress. Just look for a pair of thick-rimmed glasses and draw a mark on your child’s head.

Pioneer children (The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by CS Lewis) Choose one of the 4 Pevensies, then put a box on a piece of wire, write an evacuee ID card and you have a World Book Day outfit for everyone. Would be enviable نرنیا۔

Flying Fergus (Chris Hoy) This is perfect for passionate cyclists: pop on a helmet and any other cycling kit you can find, and you’re ready to go.

Sauce panman (The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton) Stick a colander on your child’s head and attach a bunch of pots and pans to his body. They may not be able to sit, but they will look great (see main picture).

Mr. Takrana or Little Miss Office (Roger Hargreaves) This is for children: dress them in blue, wrap them in bandages and glue them to some plaster. If you don’t have meter strips in your bathroom closet, a low roll will suffice.

Paper doll (Julia Donaldson) Borrow a school uniform (or as much as you can get) and make a paper doll chain to wear around your child’s neck.
