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.
Even teachers couldn't help but join the fun, dressing up as Oompa Loompas, fantastic fairies, and wizards from Harry Potter.
Our picture special features photos of children from Scarning, Cawston, Castle Acre Church of England Primary Academy, Colkirk Primary, Grove House Infant and Nursery School, King's Park Infant School, Neatherd High School, and Saxlingham Primary School.
