World Book Day 2019 is right around the corner, and schools across the country will be encouraging pupils to dress as their favourite book characters.

With a book, a film and now a musical to draw upon, there's no shortage of potential Matilda costumes. A blue dress and red ribbon will make a perfect book character outfit, or try a grey blazer and skirt for the musical approach.
Be it Marvel or DC, superheroes are all the rage right now. Ask a friend if you can borrow their little one's costume for the day. In a pinch, try a printed superhero logo pinned to the right coloured shirt.
Disney's 101 Dalmatians was an adaptation of a 1956 book. If you don't have a blanket or costume to hand, try marking a plain white top with permanent marker. Great for matching costumes for siblings or friends.
