Characters from the best selling children’s book “The Super Competitive Parent Who Has To Be Best At Everything” are once again the most popular choice of costume for Book Week.
“We’re expecting to see heaps of students turning up dressed as The Kid Whose Mum Owns A Top Of The Line Sewing Machine and The Kid Whose Dad Reckons There Must Be A Book Version Of The Spiderman Movie So That’s What You’re Wearing,” said Daisy Letraset, sixth class teacher at Penshurst North Primary School. “I’m still hoping to see someone dressed up as an old favourite like That Nerdy Kid Who Actually Enjoys Going To The Library And Foolishly Made Their Own Costume.”
“Book Week is important because it encourages kids to look at books in a new light, specifically as another means to prove their superiority over their less popular classmates,” said headmaster Paul Chalkdust. “It’s great to see kids who’ve never picked up a book before discovering that books can be used to bring down further humiliation upon those kids whose parents aren’t very good at craft work.”
“Book Week always leads to great sales for my book “The Kid Who Only Told His Parents The Night Before That Book Week Is On And Has To Make Something Out Of Pool Noodles”,” said children’s book author Sally Blurb. “I’m already working on the sequel, “Spotlight Only Has A Pirate Costume Left, There Must Be A Book With A Pirate Character In It”, which I hope to have in all good book shops by next year.”
