Children in Nottingham have been celebrating World Book Day by paying homage to Where’s Wally.
More than 100 children at Bluebell Hill Primary School in St Ann’s have been celebrating the biggest annual event of books and reading.
Red striped t-shirts and round edged glasses have taken over the school as children have been dressing up as the fictional character, Wally from the books Where’s Wally.
The children have been making posters, postcards and drawing with the aim of bringing the love of books to life.

Parents have also been invited into the school to help encourage pupils to read. Zowie Hearn, who’s daughter is in the Foundation year says reading everyday is very important at home as well as in school.
Eager book worms filled the school and the search for Wally continued throughout the day as teachers carefully placed Where’s Wally characters hidden away for children to discover.
Shardonnay Cole, Year 5, didn’t need much encouragement as she’s loved reading from a young age.

Deputy Head Teacher Rebecca Edge said the school encourages reading from any platform including iPads and Kindles and stresses how important it is that children enjoy the magic of story telling.
