Pupils at a Hitchin school got into the spirit of World Book Day by turning up for lessons dressed as their favourite literary characters.
Youngsters at Strathmore Infant and Nursery School in Old Hale Way transformed themselves into famous figures including Winnie the Witch and her cat Wilbur, Superman and Fantastic Mr Fox.
Headteacher Bernadette Holmes said: “Encouraging children to take an interest in reading is so important.
“I’d like to say a big thank you to all our children and the parents who made such an effort to make it such an exciting day on Thursday.
“As part of our World Book Day events we also had a book exchange and a photo competition where pupils brought in pictures of themselves reading in unusual places – such as telephone boxes, in trees, hanging upside down, in front of an aquarium, and even in a shopping trolley!
