The best costumes to buy for World Book Day

World Book Day is almost upon us once again. The annual event normally sees primary school classrooms across the country filled with excited, undersized BFGs, Mary Poppinses and Gruffalos. And despite schools in England still being closed, this year won’t look too different - with children being encouraged to dress up at home.

If you haven’t found the perfect fancy dress yet, Lisa Snowdon has found the best outfits from the supermarket and online.
