SLIDESHOW: World Book Day arrives in Leeds

Have your say

Some of the best-loved characters from children’s stories leapt off the page and into Leeds today to celebrate World Book Day.

From Goldlilocks to Gangsta Granny, the Queen of Hearts, Tinkerbell and Robin Hood, thousands of pupils and staff seized the chance to dress up and bring their fictional favourites to life.

And many schools went a step further in their celebration of all things literary – with some children acting out their best-loved scenes while other creative classes filmed movie-style trailers to advertise their most cherished tales.
