Meet the new Bookmarks!

Introducing… a whole new gang of characters to join the family of World Book Day Bookmarks, chosen by YOU!

The gorgeous range of booky characters that were created last year by our fab World Book Day illustrator, Rob Biddulph, were such a big hit that we thought it was only right to expand the gang.

So we took to Twitter and asked you to post your ideas and suggestions for new characters using the hashtag #WBDBookmarks. You didn’t disappoint. We received over 400 nominations, with Astronaut and Unicorn ranking among the most popular.

Rob chose his favourites and came up with a whopping 32 new bookmarks (we’d only asked for five!). Look out for them on the World Book Day website, throughout our Resources and on our social media feeds.
