A SCARY witch, a slip­pery frog, a pi­rate with­out a ship and a spotty dog.

Cap­tain Hook, shiver me tim­bers, maybe a zom­bie, jeep­ers creep­ers.

Lalaloopsy stops for a look, Mary Pop­pins read­ing her book.

Eidsvold chil­dren, and other chil­dren from right across the North Bur­nett, took on the chal­lenge, dress­ing up for BookWeek.

The chil­dren worked to­gether to bring their books to life.

In­side the book is a life just wait­ing to jump off the page, like a sneeze’s an­tic­i­pa­tion. Given the chance to jump from the page the chil­dren of Eidsvold, no mat­ter what age, will take on the dare and get up on the stage.

PIGS IN PINK: Th­ese three lit­tle pigs even went to the trou­ble of de­cid­ing what to build their house out of: Jemma Evans had the house of sticks, Jor­dane Gar­diner was smart enough to choose the bricks and Lailah Mitchell had the house of straw.

Alex Kielly's Harry Pot­ter cos­tume is mag­i­cal.

Spi­der­man Tyler Keit­ley, "crazy Tinker­bell" Bella South­ern and Cin­derella Bella Cook have a fun morn­ing at school.

Tay­lor Edgar has the whole col­lec­tion of Garfield comics and likes to read them ev­ery hour of the day. Shardia Dahtler came as her favourite Dis­ney princess Poc­a­hon­tas.

Prince Charm­ing Nate Glas­gow and Bai­ley McLur­can, who came as the pi­rate from Dragon Blood Pi­rate com­pare their cos­tumes.

Tooth­less pi­rate An­drew Moir and gla­di­a­tor Jor­dan Kielly say they are in­spired by lots of the books in the school li­brary.
