Mad Hatter Girls Child Costume2017 is going to be a great year for Book Week! There have been many wonderful literary releases this year, and the 2017 Book Week theme "Escape to Everywhere" gives children much imaginative freedom. To top it all off, this year has seen the release of some amazing Book Week kids' costumes! We've put them together in this handy list for you to check out.

Mary Poppins

This lovely lady remains a very popular character for Book Week! Possibly best known for the Disney movie of the same name, Mary Poppins first appeared in the children's book series by P. L. Travers, which was released between 1934 and 1988.

Mad Hatter

This adorable female version of the Mad Hatter is expected to prove popular with girls! The original character of the Mad Hatter first appeared in Lewis Carroll's 1865 novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

Hermione Granger

Made famous in the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling, now you can get your hands on a Gryffindor sweater and tie to complete your child's Hermione Granger costume to perfection! This costume set also works wonderfully for Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, or any other Gryffindor student.

Willy Wonka

Who doesn't love this enigmatic chocolate factory owner from Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? Now your child can bring their favourite chocolatier to life with either the classic or modern version of his costume.

Harry Potter Hermione Sweater and Tie Child CostumeOompa Loompa

Also from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, grab your orange face paint to dress your child as a funny Oompa Loompa! These factory workers help Willy Wonka make the chocolate and teach naughty children a lesson. If you have two children, why not dress them as Willy Wonka and an Oompa Loompa together?


This animated Disney movie tells the story of Moana's search for the demigod Maui in order to save her island. Maui is a cultural hero and trickster in Polynesian mythology, appearing in many stories throughout history. Dress your child as Moana so she can start her own search for the cheeky demigod!

Queen of Hearts

This evil queen is another popular character from Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Your child will be able to scream "Off with their heads!" while running around as this fierce character!

Cheshire Cat

Not only is this Alice's Adventures in Wonderland character fun and mischievous, but the costume is super comfy! Kids will love wearing this costume to school and having fun in the bright colourful outfit.
