It’s World Book Day today and we’re looking for your pictures celebrating the big day.
Schools across the county are letting their pupils go wild with creative costumes of their favourite book characters – with Harry Potter, Matilda and the Mad Hatter among those venturing to school.
Teachers are also being encouraged to get into the literary spirit with their costumes, and we’re putting together a special online gallery of all your fabulous creations, so if you’re all decked out send your pictures here.
World Book Day is a national event, which this year is celebrating its 20th anniversary. It aims to encourage, celebrate and appreciate reading for everyone.
Youngsters are given special book tokens to put towards a story of their choice, or they can enjoy one of ten exclusive books each year released for the occasion.
A host of events are often held by bookstores, libraries, authors and publishers, all with the aim of putting the spotlight on reading.
• On March 14 we will be publishing a special pull-out and keep supplement with more than a hundred school photos taken across Ipswich and wider Suffolk.
