World Book Day Costumes

World Book Day is a chance for us all to dress as our favourite literary or book characters, and celebrate the simple joy of reading a book. Fancy dress can be easily be inspired by book characters, and costumes are made affordable by our low prices! We carefully select high quality and officially licensed costumes for kids popular book characters so that you can be assured that you're paying the lowest prices for the best World Book Day costumes.

A celebration of books, authors, illustrators and reading - World Book Day is organised and recognised by UNESCO. It is a popular day for schools and parents to promote the joys of literature to children of all ages, and in the UK is annually celebrated on the first Thursday of March instead of the 23rd April to avoid clashing with St Georges Day. Literature inspires people, children and young adults to use their imagination to picture characters, and the best books have inspired a number of TV shows and movies, supplying us with favourite characters whatever our age - think Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, and everyone's favourite Winnie The Pooh Costumes as inspiration!
