Thousands of children across the region are dressing up in celebration of World Book Day.

Three-year-old Alfie Boare from Southampton is dressed up as Harry O'Hay from The Scarecrows' Wedding.

Each year schools are invited to embrace the event. The World Book Day Award challenge also encourages schools to create their own 'world of stories' inspired by a children's book.
