CHILDREN in Hadleigh have dressed up as their favourite book characters to get closer to literature.
Youngsters from St Mary's Primary School in Stonehouse Road took part in 'Come to School as a Book Character Day' an annual event held before the school's book fair.
Alison Herbert, the school's headteacher, said: “The aim is to focus on different books ahead of World Book Day and to encourage children and parents to read books together.
“The children loved deciding what to come as, and this year were more imaginative than ever.
“They had brought lots of extras with them as well to enhance their costumes. The staff too joined in the fun, by hiring or making some good costumes.
“During the day children were encouraged to talk about their book character and also share some of the stories about them.”
