What’s more, dressing up your child to look like a book character doesn’t have to be expensive or time-consuming.

This year the day falls on Tuesday, 23rd April, and there’s still plenty of time to prepare a top quality costume for your littl’un.

Here are some suggestions for making an envy-inducing costume…

Be resourceful

Think about the items you’ve already got, as there’s bound to be something useful.

If there’s an item of clothing that’s a specific color, or pattern, find a book character that wears that sort of thing and works from there.

If your child has lots of sports gear you could choose a sporty character or a musical one if they play an instrument.

Roald Dahl creations

Because Roald Dahl likes writing about ‘ordinary’ children his books offer plenty of choice for easy-to-dress characters.

You’ve got Charlie Bucket who wears his own clothes and carries chocolate with him and a Golden Ticket, for example.

There’s also all of Charlie’s fellow factory guests, plus James from James And The Giant Peach, Matilda, the Girl from The Magic Finger, and many more.

Try animal onesies

Onesies or pajamas can be an excellent and very simple solution for dressing as animals or…. characters who wear pajamas.

You can get onesies that look like everything from unicorns to cows. Add a bit of face paint and you’ve got a convincing cat/ bear/ lion/ dinosaur, and so on.

Alternatively, you can use one of your child’s toys as a prop to be the character’s pet or animal companion.

And because there are so many stories about kids in their pajamas (Tom from Tom’s Midnight Garden, Sophie from BFG, Wendy from Peter Pan, the Grandmother from Little Red Hiding Hood) you’re spoiled for choice.

Fairytale characters

Fairytale characters are equally easy to put together and they range from princesses, fairies, and knights to goblins, elves, dragons, and gnomes.

Alternatively, if your child has a family of three cuddly bear toys, the character of Goldilocks is an option.
