School children across mid and north Norfolk dressed up as their favourite characters for this year's World Book Day.
Marked in more than 100 countries across the globe, World Book Day is an annual celebration of the beauty of reading.
After weeks of preparation from parents to ensure outfits were ready, youngsters donned their character attire and arrived at school to compare their efforts on Thursday March 7.
Some dressed up as Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka, while others showed off their finest Disney princess dresses.
Others arrived as the Fantastic Mr Fox, Where's Wally, and perilous pirates, as well as a whole host of mini superheroes.
