I must confess *whispers*… I quite enjoyed getting ready for this year’s World Book Day – yes, I too am surprised! But this year, Mook and Lulu were under strict instructions to plan who they wanted to be, and to give me more than the usual 12 hours’ notice.
It is not unheard of for Family Mook & Lulu to dash from supermarket to supermarket at 7am on the morning of World Book Day in search of a costume, when either the children planned their own outfits only to break down hysterically when it didn’t quite work on the day, or I reacted in horror at the crumpled piece of paper pulled from a school bag informing me I had to send my child to school dressed as their favourite literary character that same day!
The school were brilliant this year, giving us plenty of notice to plan – and although I spent the weekend sourcing and painting a ‘tortoise shell’, and have been sewing every evening this week, we are all delighted with the results! Hurrah! So, I present to you… Mook as Fantastic ‘Mrs’ Fox and Lulu as ‘Esio Trot’ – Roald Dahl wins out again!
