Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland and Where’s Wally were favourites among youngsters this World Book Day.

Children at Howard Junior School in King’s Lynn were among those taking part across East Anglia and threw a Mad Hatters Tea Party, had a costume parade and workshops by children’s author Stewart Foster to celebrate the event.

The 10-year-old said: “He’s just hilarious and I love the theme because I’m like him, he’s fun and just wow. I’ve read Alice and Wonderland at least six times.”

Lucas Cann, eight, dressed as the newest Harry Potter character, Newt Scamander and said it is because he loves the movie and Harry Potter.

Cover teacher Liz Smart said: “I feel World Book Day is very important because in a lot of places all across the world people are forgetting about books, but they’re wonderful.”
