Some of the children from Shilbottle Primary School dressed up for World Book Day.

YOUR PICTURES: World Book Day - Chapter One

It's World Book day today (Thursday, March 7, 2019), a chance for young and old, although mainly young, to dress up as their favourite characters from literature. Our gallery sees the Cat in the Hat and Shimmer, alongside the likes of Postman Pam and a host of Harry Potters. We will be adding to the pictures throughout the day, so keep checking back for your little ones playing a starring role. Pictured above are the youngsters from Shilbottle Primary School.

Submit your pictures to the Gazette Facebook page for consideration for this online gallery or in the Northumberland Gazette newspaper next week. Or you can send them by email to northumberland.gazette@jpimedia.co.uk
