A little girl I know is going to school on World Book Day dressed as a mermaid.
'How are you going to get there?' I asked.
'I'll swim' she replied.
Her chosen book for the day is The Singing Mermaid by Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks which she'll carry with her. Every child in her school will be dressed as their favourite book character as they swim, walk, run or saunter into the classroom on Thursday morning.
And this little girl had a difficult decision to make as the bookcase in her bedroom is crammed full of her favourite stories - and some of her mother's favourite childhood books too.
'Join our Festival of Imagination' says the World Book Day website 'turning millions of kids into millions of readers.'
Now I'm a fan of e-books - my debut novel Baggy Pants and Bootees reached 7,000 in the Amazon kindle charts - but the physical book is a joy that will never go out of fashion.
For many of you a love of books began in childhood, but do you remember the one that held you spellbound more than all the rest? And what are the children in your family doing on World Book Day? I'd love to hear from you.
World Book Day is on Thursday March 3 2016
