Schoolchildren across Camden and Haringey have been sharing their love of fiction on World Book Day.
To mark the 20th anniversary of the national celebration of literature, staff and students got into the spirit of things by dressing up as their favourite characters.
A band of teachers dressed as Oompa Loompas certainly caught the eye at Channing School, while over at Coldfall Primary School there were appearances from a Stormtrooper and Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz.
Clare Constant, who is acting head of Channing Junior School, said: “We have had some fabulous costumes for our World Book Day celebrations today.
“Everything from Captain Underpants to a troop of staff Oompa Loompas.
