Schools across Waveney have been celebrating all that is wonderful about books - albeit a few days later than planned.
The 21st edition of World Book Day officially took place on March 1, but widespread snowfall closed hundreds of schools and largely halted proceedings.
Nevertheless, most schools rescheduled their plans for this week, when pupils were finally able to dress up as characters from their favourite stories
Worlingham Primary School was among those to celebrate, with children arriving dressed as characters including Where’s Wally? and Paddington Bear.
Meanwhile, Beccles Free School held its usual ‘bake a book’ competition, which sees pupils bake a cake in the form of their favourite book.

Nigel Youngman, Beccles Free School headteacher, said: “With the snow gone, it’s been a chance to come together and celebrate books. All over the school we now have recommendations of brilliant reads from students, staff and trustees.
“Special thanks go to the Women’s Institute for judging our competition.”
