20 Of The Cutest Costumes For World Book Day

We love these novel looks

World book day is a celebration of reading, which is great. As a bonus we also get to have a giggle at children dressed up, usually against their will, as characters from classic stories.

Here's a bunch of the best costumes we've seen. Poor kids.

 Genius dad thinking

  We don't want to choose favourites but this comes close

 It's Violet Beauregard after chewing on the three-course dinner gum!

This boy looks less than impressed to be dressed as an Oompa Loompa 

  It's pretty clear who does the BFG look best

Nailing the Harry Potter look

That's one patient mum

 Looking cool as Neil Gaiman's Coraline

We are dotty about this costume from What the Ladybird Heard

It's a hungry catterpillar! 

The resemblance here is uncanny 

We are particularly loving that Minion costume 

Found her! 

This is just elephantastic 

Very retro  

 It's not only people that love getting dressed up

Aww it's the least scary Gruffalo we've ever seen 

As elegant as Angelina Ballerina herself 

 The bonus owl just makes this

 And we don't know what the hell is going on here
