world book day 2019 costume roundup!

If you follow this blog, you'll know I really do like dressing up. And on World Book Day, often I'm surrounded by a sea of identical costumes bought off the rack at a supermarket. But it's those rare moments I love, when I spot a completely original version of a character from books I've worked on. Here are a few from today that made me very happy! Starting with the first appearance of Kevin, the Roly-Poly Flying Pony:

Here's Bertie's amazing Thurlestone costume from Oliver and the Seawigs!

Here's an excellent Jeremy Moonbottom from Jinks & O'Hare Funfair Repair, created by Henry! He even brought a Rustler into school, which created quite a stir!

But World Book Day isn't all about costumes, it's ultimately about books! And costume or no costume, these kind of messages are the kind writers and illustrators love to see!
