Our favourite World Book Day costumes and where to get them


This Thursday March 7th is the 22nd World Book Day. World Book Day is a registered charity started in 1995, and every year they give out book tokens that kids can redeem or a book of their choice at any participating book shop.

We’ve taken a look at the costumes on sale across all the major supermarket and rounded up our best value favourites here.

ASDA is currently running an everything £8 deal for World Book Day costumes. Pictured below, their range includes Paddington Bear, Fantastic Mr. Fox. Harry Potter, The Tiger Who Came To Tea, Little Red Riding Hood and more.
