Children from all over Powys dressed up as their favourite characters to mark the annual World Book Day.

Wally from the Where’s Wally Books – who was considerably easier to spot than usual – joined the likes of Frozen’s Elsa and classic fairytale characters like Goldilocks for the yearly celebration of all things literary on Friday, March 6.

This year, the charity behind World Book Day is encouraging people to take part in a nationwide effort to “share a million stories”.

Llanfair Caereinion Town Council and the town library joined forces to put a literary spectacle for pupils and teachers at Caereinion High School.

The winners of best costume were Paddington Bear and Hetty Feather who each won a £10 book token from the town council. While best group costume went to Willy Wonker an the Chocolate Factory. And as a special treat, headteacher Phil Jones rewarded everyone who attended the special event with a free lunch in the canteen.

Vickie Griffith, town council clerk, said: “This is the second year we have put on such an event and interest in it continues to grow. It was a real community triumph.”
