World Book Day is one of my favourite days of the year. I just love the cosy sense of community. Seeing all the children in costume, excitedly walking to school as their favourite book character. The influx of customers at the bookshop, coming to exchange their WBD voucher for a free book! Stories, fancy dress, FREE BOOKS! What's not to love?
I happily made this illustration for Improper Books this year, in celebration of the day.
