The Blue Peter Book Awards 2013 is fast emerging on the horizon to coincide with World Book Day and All Fancy Dress predicts Michael Rosen’s biography of Roald Dahl will scoop up the award for ‘Best Book with Facts’ as the nation once again celebrates arguably the finest children’s story writer ever to have lived.

A book celebrating the life and times of the best children’s storybook author to grace these shores is set to make a big splash at the Blue Peter Book Awards 2013, according to the UK’s leading online fancy dress retailers,

‘Fantastic Mr Dahl’, a touching and inspirational biography of the late, great Roald Dahl by Michael Rosen is expected to clean up at the Blue Peter Book Awards 2013 after being shortlisted as one of three possible winners in the category of ‘Best Book with Facts’.

Not only does the book provide a unique blend of biographical content with literary assessment and subtle writing advice for budding children, it is also expected to heighten the popularity of Dahl’s classic tales and his unmistakable characters that have been much loved through the generations.

Steve John, of All Fancy Dress, said: “We are all well aware of the many timeless characters that we have taken to our hearts reading Roald Dahl’s classics as youngsters and this new biography is likely to breathe new life into his back catalogue and give children of the 21st Century some new heroes to worship.

“At All Fancy Dress we experienced significant demand for our Roald Dahl outfits, modelled on the likes of Willy Wonka, Fantastic Mr Fox and even the Enormous Crocodile, on Roald Dahl Day and we anticipate further interest over World Book Day.”

Aside from Roald Dahl costumes, AFD also stocks a host of other fun fancy dress ideas for kids to enjoy as well as adults. With over 3,000 outfits and accessories to choose from the Essex-based retailer is fast becoming one of the largest fancy dress outlets in the UK.
