World Book Day in Sunderland: Grab some inspiration for 2024 with these nine pictures from the past

Lots of good reads and great costumes here

It's not long now until World Book Day returns.

To give you some inspiration before the big day on March 7, we delved into the Sunderland Echo archives for reminders of how you celebrated in the past.

You dressed up at Hetton Lyons Primary, read some great stories at Quarry View School and some of you even went on the train to London to give out books to passengers in 2008.

Re-live those memories once more.
