Best Ever Book Week Costumes

  • Kids

Book Week is an annual celebration of all things books. Every year, young people across the country participate by attending events at schools, libraries, bookstores and beyond; celebrating the joy of reading and the different worlds and characters that are brought to life through fiction.

And, the costumes. We couldn't talk about Book Week without mentioning the costumes! A rite of passage for youngsters, each year they get to dress up as their favourite character—so we've picked out some of our favourite looks for you to try and replicate at home, and compiled them into a short, snappy list. You're welcome!

2. The Wickedly (Cute) Maleficent
