Children across Wearside have been letting their creative flags fly, donning costumes to pay homage to their favourite characters from beloved stories. And we’ve been loving your pictures! Families have really been putting in the effort with this year's outfits and here are some of our favourite photographs so far. See if you can spot your own little bookworms in action!
