Today is World Book Day and children across the country are celebrating the wonders of reading by dressing up as their favourite characters.

From princesses to giants, wizards to aliens, we want to see the best of the costumes in Newham.

It’s not too late to see your child in our online picture gallery and the best snaps could make it into next week’s Recorder.

Tweet @NewhamRecorder or email sophie.morton@archant.co.uk with your child’s name, age and school.
