World Book Day: Fairytales, monsters and famous faces - your best costumes in pictures
Children across the country have been sharing their favourite stories and paying tribute to their top characters for World Book Day.
We have had witches and wizards, classic characters and some animal magic in a range of outstanding outfits from all of you. Thank you to everyone who sent a photograph to celebrate World Book Day - and we hope you have had a brilliant day at school!
