It’s World Book Day today which means it’s a day to celebrate the beauty and significance of a good read.
But let’s be honest the reality is it’s the day parents panic as they try to make their child resemble some character from that one book you saw them read that one time.
As a result the day has been on the lips of the people in the street and very much on the mind of social media users everywhere.

Not such a happy Harry.
