Youngsters at Axminster Community Primary School dressed as characters form their favourite stories to celebrate World Book Day.

From caped crusaders to fairytale heroines, they wore a variety of colourful costumes to mark the occasion.

Youngsters in all seven classes joined in the fun and teachers chose a winning outfit from each.

As part of the celebrations, former school administrator Kay Pike presented the children with a selection of books for which staff said they were extremely grateful.

● World Book Day is designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, marked in over 100 countries.
