Pupils across Hampshire dressedup as their favourite characters for World Book Day.

The annual celebration of authors, illustrators and reading is now in its 19th year and is marked by more than 100 countries around the world.

Book tokens will be given to children who take part so they can purchase £1 books from a special selected list of titles.

Last year we were inundated with images from readers of mini Where's Wallys, oompa loompas, Cruella de Vils and Harry Potters as they took part in the event.

We'd love to see your pictures again.
