1. Jamie McFlair

Jamie McFlair is a courageous young heroine.

She is the main character in Sean Thorne (from Fun Kids breakfast!) and Luke Franks’ Jamie McFlair book series.

Jamie stars in Jamie McFlair Vs The Boyband Generator and the brand new book Jamie McFlair Vs The Ultimate Brain Hack.

Grab a red t-shirt, jeans and a pair of trainers! For extra detail you could write the name of Jamie’s band on the front – BNA! (make sure it’s an old one!)

For bonus points you could find a wig for Jamie’s trademark red hair!

2. Harry Potter

Enter the world of wizarding! These listeners have dressed up as Harry Potter.

You will need a black robe, glasses… and don’t forget about Hedwig and your wand!

You won’t be able to do any spells otherwise!
