Seven-year-old takes World Book Day to another level with Ms Trunchbull outfit03/06/2020
Yesterday, thousands of kids across the UK dressed up as their favourite characters to mark World Book Day.
Everyone’s outfit was a winner, but one seven-year-old girl took the day to another level when she dressed up as a character from Roald Dahl’s Matilda.
Lilly Cant embodied the character that would have frightened any child when they read the book or saw the movie – and that person is Ms Agatha Trunchbull.
The youngster, from Devon, had her mum Laura, 29, in stitches when she strolled into her school wearing the outfit on Thursday.
She wore the classic 1972 Olympics hoodie, drew a monobrow and put on a weight belt while carrying a bag of shot puts.

Laura said: “Matilda is Lilly's favourite book and one of her favourite films. She wanted to go as Miss Trunchbull – I asked her why not Matilda and she said it was too easy!
"It was very easy to put together, almost all of it was ordered from eBay and I got the hoodie printed locally.
"It's fantastic because a lot of the items can be re used for every day use – the belt is her step dad's!
"She was bursting at it all when the whole look came together, she couldn't wait to go to school! She gets such a buzz from dressing up and everyone knew exactly who she was straight away!"

Another commented: “Best thing I think I’ve ever seen.”
A third hailed: “That’s utterly brilliant.”
