Stu­dents and teach­ers in Hed­land dressed as their favourite char­ac­ters from some of their favourite books last week in hon­our of Chil­dren’s Book Week.

The North West Tele­graph caught up with just a few of the schools to check out the weird and won­der­ful cos­tumes on show.

With Alice and the Hunger Games’ Kat­niss Everdeen seem­ingly the most pop­u­lar char­ac­ters, stu­dents showed their favourite place to es­cape to as part of the na­tional read­ing cam­paign theme. Held by the Chil­dren’s Book Coun­cil of Aus­tralia, the event aims to bring chil­dren and books to­gether.
