World Book Day 2015

I am fortunate that my children love books as much as me.

I am so in awe of my daughter as she has begun reading her first ‘proper’ book, with chapters, a book that can’t be read in one sitting.

And so, this year, World Book Day, is one for them to really appreciate celebrating.

Although mummy may have had a little influence!

I may have been caught up in my own imagination discovering Asda‘s range of fancy dress clothes. Because. Yes. They have Roald Dahl characters!


And whilst there was no distracting CM from her fairy tales, and wanting to grow her hair so long she can become Rapunzel, fortunately the boys are a little more compliant.

And I gained the most wonderful BFG and Fantastic Mr Fox.

And I absolutely love the detail of each of the costumes. The detail of the Roald Dahl characters exceeded my expectations, and CM was delighted to have a veil to set off Rapunzel’s wedding dress.

Quality wise, they are comparable to the other costumes we have, but it really is the accompanying detail that made the children so excited and enthused to become their character.

And story time tonight should be the best ever, as I get to begin ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’ with them all.World Book Day 2015

      Thank you 🙂 I’m so used to CM’s fairy costumes that I was so impressed with the quality and detail.
