World Book day is supposed to celebrate reading, but has slowly turned into Halloween-lite, as schoolchildren are urged to turn up dressed as book characters. This can lead to a great deal of stress for parents – and teachers – but also to impressive creativity, not to mention the sad faces of parents telling their local paper their offspring were sent home for dressing as Fred and Rose West.

These pictures and jokes capture the gamut of World Book Day life.
