That's what I call a hot potato
If you're a parent who struggled last Thursday with having to dress your child up as a character from a book, in order for them to attend school and celebrate World Book Day, then you might be glad to know that you had it easy here.
In England, in some schools, it wasn't the kids who had to dress up. Oh no, that'd be too straightforward.
No, they had to bring in a potato, dressed up as a character from a book!
Pity it wasn't film characters – they could've brought in a bowl of mash and called it The Champ.
