Tintin and Snowy - for World Book Day

World Book Day is celebrated annually in over 100 countries around the world. It's a celebration of Reading. A celebration of books, authors and illustrators aimed to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading.

Many schools celebrate by having a dress-up day, where children go to school dressed as their favourite book character.

Today our son, who is in Grade 2, went to school dressed as one of his all time favourite characters...
accompanied by his loyal companion, Snowy.

Tintin and Snowy off to school for World Book Day.

And... you know how much I Love coincidences and synchronicity...
After dropping our son (aka Tintin) off for school,
my husband (who is a photographer) arrived at his location for today's shoot and was met by these gorgeous sculptures.
