IF there's anything we love more than seeing our kids in fancy dress, it's having them dress up as their favourite storybook characters. To celebrate this year's World Book Day, we asked The Sun Online readers to send in photos of their children all dressed up to mark the occasion - and the adorable snaps did not disappoint. Celebrated for more than 20 years, World Book Day has children — and even parents! Leading the way for the most spot-on Dorothy we've ever seen, Evie, 9, headed into school this morning dressed as the Wizard of Oz's heroine. Complete with a gingham dress and toy Toto, dressing as Dorothy was a no-brainer for the Year Five student as the Wizard of Oz is one of her favourite books. Meanwhile little brother Teddy looked adorable as Cuddly Dudley and was desperate to dress as the penguin because his mother read all four stories to her children growing up. Taking inspiration from the classic Roald Dahl book, six-year-old Tyler is dressed to impress in his spot-on Willy Wonka costume.

The story features the adventures of young Charlie Bucket inside the chocolate factory of eccentric chocolatier Willy Wonka. Knopf, Inc. Dahl had also planned to write a third book in the series but never finished it. The story was originally inspired by Roald Dahl's experience of chocolate companies during his schooldays. Cadbury would often send test packages to the schoolchildren in exchange for their opinions on the new products. Because of this, both companies became highly protective of their chocolate-making processes. It was a combination of this secrecy and the elaborate, often gigantic, machines in the factory that inspired Dahl to write the story.
