Nosy Crow in the wild on World Book Day

Yesterday the @NosyCrowBooks Twitter feed came alive with photos of hundreds of EXCELLENT World Book Day costumes – including lots featuring characters from Nosy Crow books! Here are some of the ones that we spotted…

Pamela Butchart and Gemma Correll’s Pugly proved to be a popular choice of costume:

And we also spotted a fantastic Izzy (complete with Baby Aliens!), inspired by Pamela and Thomas Flintham’s Baby Aliens Got My Teacher:

I LOVED this Dave outfit, inspired by Frann Preston-Gannon’s caveman picture books:

And the detail in this Princess Daisy costume, from Steven Lenton’s Princess Daisy and the Dragon and the Nincompoop Knights, is just outstanding (the colander helmet! the feather duster! the patches on the dress! A+++, would wear this outfit again):

Here’s a suitably grumpy Mr Grunt:

And here’s a camera-shy Bizzy Bear:

An excellent Nat (and Fizz!) from Susan Moore’s Crimson Poison:

But the runaway winners this year as the most popular choice of outfits were Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam – there were some FANTASTIC interpretations of everyone’s favourite robber dogs:

Thank you so much to everyone who tweeted pictures of their costumes – we absolutely loved seeing them all!
