Today is a special day for children across Bucks.

It's World Book Day - which means youngsters have picked out their dressing up costumes and dressed up as their favourite literary character.

The annual celebration of reading and writing typically sees children of all ages going to school dressed up as witches, wizards, pirates and princesses and other literary characters.

We know celebrations may not be the same this year, but we still want to help celebrate your children’s love of reading.

We asked Bucks Free Press readers to send in photos of their best costumes - and parents did not disappoint.

This is a selection of some of the photos that have been sent into us already today - keep sending them in and we'll add them to the story!

Bucks Free Press:

Isla-May Thomson, aged seven, dressed up as Roald Dahl's beloved character, Matilda. She goes to Booker Hill Primary School.

Bucks Free Press:

Steven, aged six, from Princes Risborough, dressed up as Harry Potter with his aunt, Danielle, playing Professor McGonagall.

Mum Melanie Rolfe said he chose Harry "for the magic and [because] he wants to go to Hogwarts instead of real school".

He goes to Monks Risborough CofE Primary School.

Bucks Free Press:

Seven-year-old Douglas Young, who attends Chepping View Primary Academy, dressed up as Slappy the Dummy from Goosebumps: ‘Night of the Living Dummy’.

Mum Victoria said he chose the character "because he looks smart in a suit and bow tie and he is mischievous!"

He attends The Downley School and can be seen here making magic in his Zoom lessons.
