Countdown to World Book Day: Our Top Pick of Costume Ideas for Boys

World Book Day is an opportunity to inspire the next generation of readers and dressing up as a favourite character is a big part of the fun. As the countdown to this year's event gets under way, we've decided to put together some of our top costume picks for book-loving boys.
Fabulous Folklore
Robin Hood may only be the stuff of legend, but he makes an appearance in many children's adventure stories. Recreate the antics of Sherwood Forest's most famous outlaw with this brilliant Robin Hood outfit for boys - and all you'll need is a bow and arrow to complete the look.
Step Into Wonderland
Bring Lewis Carroll's Alice In Wonderland books to life with our rather regal King Of Hearts costume for boys - just be careful not to annoy the Queen!
Hooked on Books
JM Barrie's Peter Pan has become a staple of children's fiction thanks to the adventurous exploits of the boy who will never grow up. Transform into Peter Pan's arch-enemy - and the ultimate baddie of the high seas - with our Captain Hook costume, which includes a shirt, belt, trousers, hat and frilly (but very pirate-like) jabot.
Wonderful Wizards
Does your child love Harry Potter? The hero of JK Rowling's books has become a favourite and that's why our official Harry Potter robe is a popular choice. Now all you need is a sorting hat and a pair of glasses (although you're lucky that we also stock official Harry Potter specs too).
From medieval knights to cowboys and everything in between, we've got a fantastic selection of boys' outfits to suit every budget. To start planning your World Book Day adventures, take a look at our full range here.
