With a selection of costumes for both children and grownups, if you’re searching for World Book Day fancy dress, you’ll be spoiled for choice in our collection of Roald Dahl world book day costumes.

What Is World Book Day? Why Do We Celebrate It?

Celebrated in over 100 countries all over the world, including the United Kingdom, World Book Day is more than just a celebration of books and reading, it’s an opportunity to inspired children of the 21st century to put down their Smartphone, tablet, or games console, and instead pick up a book, transporting themselves to a new and wonderful world that they can explore.

2019 will be the 22nd year that World Book Day is celebrated. In addition to celebrating the joys of reading, World Book Day (through the use of National Book Tokens Ltd) will help children to own a book of their own. With nearly one token for every child in the country aged under 18, each book token will enable them to get one of the ten exclusive books for completely free, or get £1 off any book or audio book which costs more than £2.99 (providing the bookshop or book club is participating).



When Is World Book Day?

Every year the United Kingdom celebrates World Book Day on the first Thursday of March. In 2019, it will be the 7th of March, and in 2020 it will be the 5th of March.

Who Was Roald Dahl? Was He ‘Just An Author’?

When people think of Roald Dahl, they think of his literature works; incredible books such as James and the Giant Peace, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and The BFG. However, did you know that in addition to the author loved by hundreds, “Roald Dahl was a spy, an ace fighter pilot, a chocolate historian and a medical inventor”?

After leaving school Dahl first travelled. His first destination was Canada, however later he worked for an oil company in East Africa until the outbreak of the Second World War, where he enlisted in the Royal Air Force at 23 years of age. However, after the battle of Athens he was posted to Washington where he supplied intelligence to MI6.

Also, in addition to the many books Roald Dahl is famous for, did you know that he also wrote screenplays. Some of his screenplay works include the famous Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and the well known James Bond film, You Only Live Twice.

Dahl also contributed to the world of medicine by helping to invent the Wade-Dahl-Till valve, which is an item used to help drain fluid away from the brain, which was made in partnership with an engineer and a neurosurgeon. Dahl entered the world of medicine due to his then five month old son being involved in a serious accident; developing hydrocephalus. Whilst by the time the valve was ready, his son had fortunately recovered to no longer need the valve, the device was used in thousands of operations, helping many people.

Why Should You Choose A Roald Dahl Costume For World Book Day?

Roald Dahl’s literary masterpieces have been enjoyed by numerous generations over the decades; this makes it a great choice for both children and grown-ups who want to dress up for World Book Day. Trends regarding children’s literature come and go, with new trendy titles rising and falling all the time, however children’s classics, like those expertly crafted by Dahl, stay with us generation after a generation. Many of Dahl’s books are read to children, who in turn when they grow up and have children of their own, read the same stories to their children. Dahl’s literature has become so intertwined with the culture of children’s books, his characters are the obvious choice.

So with Willy Wonka costumes for the grownups, peach costumes for children, and lots more wonderful characters from Dahl’s literary worlds to dress up as; you’ll be spoiled for choice when searching through Smiffys-Liverpool’s Roald Dahl collection of fancy dress costumes.
