BOOK characters came to life at St Peter's School in Wisbech, as pupils dressed up to celebrate their favourite literature.
Colourful costumes chosen by the youngsters included Marley's Ghost from A Christmas Carol, Noah's Ark, police officers, a transformer, a colourful bee and a scary looking crocodile, as they celebrated World Book Day.
Jayne Hill, literacy subject leader at the school, said: "We asked pupils to choose more unusual costumes, and they did brilliantly.
"We held a big parade in the hall, when each class showed off their costumes, and prizes were awarded."

Pupils also learned about Book Aid International, and as a result the school plans to raise cash to buy books for children in South Africa.
"We held a variety of activities during the week, based on favourite books and authors," added Mrs Hill.
