Citizens in the United Kingdom rang in World Book Day on Thursday, March 5th. Lucky for us, many of those celebrating decided to dress up as their favorite novel's characters...but one seven-year-old girl has just taken home the (chocolate) cake with her impression of Matilda's Ms. Trunchbull.

Lilly Cant, the fearless, Trunchbull impersonator, decided to take an unlikely route with her costume choice. Why? ' I asked her why not Matilda and she said it was too easy!' her mom, Laura revealed.


"Matilda is Lilly's favorite book and one of her favorite films," Lilly's proud mom continued. In fact, you might want to take a page our of little girl's book when Halloween rolls around.

Surprisingly, "it was very easy to put together, almost all of it was ordered from eBay and I got the hoodie printed locally," Laura said.

Of course, it's no surprise that people near and far couldn't get enough of the hilariously accurate impersonation. Laura's Facebook upload of daughter, Lilly racked in almost 25,000 likes and over 30,000 shares.

"She was bursting at it all when the whole look came together," Lilly's mother continued. Safe to say, we feel the exact same. Though I wonder how Ms. Honey feels about this one...
