How many books do you take with you on holiday?

Result: Gandalf


Gandalf is the main wizard in the Lord of the Rings books and an all-round great character! Gandalf always puts his friends first and would do anything for them. First things first though, he’s got a great big beard, and that’s a winner for sure. But don’t worry if you can’t grow a big bushy beard, cotton wool works just as good! Combine that with a grey cloak, a pointy hat and a big stick and the look is complete!

Result: Dog Man

Dog Man!

Wow! Nice one! Okay, so this one is a bit harder, because, well, Dog Man is two-dimensional, and also a dog - but with a fake nose, a hat and a blue police uniform you should be in with a good chance! Dog Man is a great choice, he always looks out for his friends and fighting evil is what gets him out of bed in the morning, seems pretty brilliant to us! Thanks Dav Pilkey, you're an inspiration!

Result: Bea Black
Honor & Perdita Cargill

Bea Black

Awesome! Our super scientific method says that Bea Black from the ‘Diary of an Accidental Witch’ is the best result for you! The outfit is pretty easy, some dark clothes, a wand and a broom and you’re there! Just remember to hold in your mind that nothing gets in Bea’s way, even if things seem tough, Bea is the kind of person to persevere through it all! Just like you!

Result: Twits
Roald Dahl

The Twits!

This is an excellent result and one of the most eye catching characters that you could possibly choose! The Twits, take your pick are some of the grossest, funniest characters in the world of writing - after all, there is no rule about going as a ‘good’ character! So gather up some twigs, throw an old potato sack over your head and get going! Awesome!
