‘Quick Costumes for Kids’ by Deborah House

(Hamlyn, $34.99)With all sorts of reasons to dress up the kids hovering around the corner, this book might be what saves little Jimmy from being a kid in a white sheet yet again. Turn your precious ones into pirates or princesses, bumble bees or bears with little more than a visit to Spotlight and an hour or two on the sewing machine. Personally, I find the wise men a bit scary – but then all kids in fake beards give me the heebies.
