World Book Day Costumes 2023

We were delighted to see so many wonderful and resourceful costumes inspired by characters from Nosy Crow books for yesterday’s World Book Day.

Designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, World Book Day is marked in over 100 countries around the globe. World Book Day founder, Baroness Gail Rebuck, says: “We wanted to do something to reposition reading and our message is the same today as it was then – that reading is fun, relevant, accessible, exciting, and has the power to transform lives.”

Dressing up is a fun and exciting way to help encourage children to engage with reading, swap recommendations, and celebrate the books they like to read.

Below are just some our favourite costumes that we were lucky to spot across our social channels!
