Schoolchildren across Hampstead, Highgate and the surrounding area came in dressed as their favourite heroes and villains, fiction and non-fiction characters, humans, animals, and just about everything else that’s ever appeared on the printed page.

Scroll down to see what Timothy captured as he visited New End, Highgate, Coleridge and Blanche Nevile schools.

Did you take your own photos? We’d love to see them! Send them to michael.adkins@archant.co.uk and the best will appear in our special World Book Day supplement on Thursday.
