From Willy Wonka to the Queen of Hearts, students are encouraged to dress up as their favourite literary character and get reading. Here are some of the best pictures from previous World Book Days in Calderdale. Are you dressing up this year? Send your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet @HXCourier.
Today (Thursday) is World Book Day and to celebrate we're looking back at the amazing fancy dress efforts from Calderdale pupils in the years gone by.
