Schoolchildren across the borough came in dressed as their favourite heroes and villains, fiction and non-fiction characters, humans, animals, and just about everything else that’s ever appeared on the printed page.

Scroll down to see what Siorna captured as she visited Benthal, Betty Layward, Betty Layward and Sir Thomas Abney primary schools.

They are appearing in our special World Book Day supplement which is out in the shops today.
