World book day is looming and last year I was unimpressed by the whole, 'dress up as your favourite character' thing. Especially as I have trying to get bear into The Wombles. I may have to revisit that. We are currently working our way through Horrid Henry, I got a set of 30 books for £25 and they were part of his Christmas/birthday stash.
Bear loves Horrid Henry stories. He races around and cackles as OH reads (OH reads while I listen with bear, then I sing songs while OH makes bear his evening drink).
Is it very wrong of me to suggest that if there is fancy dress bear goes as Horrid Henry. As it won't mean actually doing anything except put him in non uniform clothes. I could probably get away with jeans and a shirt. Possibly make bear's face look a bit dirty and rumple his hair. Bear loved the idea.
They may not have the world book day fancy dress after all. But if they do, I will be ready!
