Youngsters at many West Norfolk schools dressed up as their favourite book characters yesterday.

A variety of events took place to mark World Book Day, held each year to encourage and celebrate reading.

An array of colourful characters from favourite books were brought to life. There was a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party at Gaywood’s Howard Junior School and pupils brought their celebrations into King’s Lynn town centre where they gave out books.
