An array of colourful costumes have been gracing Norfolk's school corridors today as teachers and pupils have dressed up to celebrate World Book Day.
From classic much-loved novels such as Mary Poppins and Roald Dahl books to more recent stories such as Dog Man Unleashed and Gansta Granny, children have been dressing up as their favourite book characters. The 23rd World Book Day is an annual celebration of authors, books, illustrators and a love of reading.
The registered charity, World Book Day, is on a mission to ensure that every child and young person across the globe owns their own book. Designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, World Book Day, is marked in over 100 countries. The organisers have sent packs of book tokens and age-ranged World Book Day resource packs to registered schools to help support a love of reading in schools.
