Here are our top picks of costumes you can get for the occasion. A costume from the roaring 20s will give you serious Great Gatsby vibes, and can be easily fashioned with any old dressing up stuff you might have. Men will find it easier to do Jay Gatsby; simply slicking back their hair and putting on a dapper suit.
World Book Day returns for its 22 nd anniversary this year on March 7, marking a global celebration of literature in all forms. Many children celebrate World Book Day by going to school dressed up as their favourite characters, which can for parents often mean a frantic scramble to find a last-minute costume. The outfit includes a full-length cloak and pointed hat. Mr Twit never washes his beard, meaning he gets bits of food stuck in it.
Make the outfit more convincing with some props and accessories. With a huge library of books, including many free e-books, Kindles and E-Readers are an easy way to explore the great wealth of literature available. Ideal for keeping both kids and adults reading and learning, many devices are light, read like paper and have glare-free displays.
