It is World Book Day today (Thursday, March 3) and children in Ellesmere Port are dressing up as their favourite fictional character for the occasion.

In celebration of books, authors, illustrators and most importantly reading, we are putting together a gallery of photos filled with your mini Harry Potters, Little Red Riding Hoods, Gruffalos and many more.

If you’d like your child’s photo in our gallery, tweet us @EPPioneer with the full name, character and school name. Alternatively, you can post them to our Facebook page or email
