SCHOOL pupils across the country have been dressing up as their favourite literary characters today for World Book Day.

World Book Day is held in March each year and is a registered charity with the mission to give every child and young person a book of their own.

We asked for your pictures of you little ones in their costumes.

Here are you mini Harry Potters, Matildas and even Gangsta Grannys.
