CHILDREN across the country will be dusting off their magic wands, finding their fairy wings and dressing up as their favourite character for World Book Day (today).

Wimpy Kids, Wallies and Wendas, Potters, Spots and Supertatos will all be marking the day, which aims to encourage more children to take up reading.

Special book tokens, handed out in schools, will allow youngsters to pick up one of a selection of title for free, to help get them started.

To send pictures of your little book lovers, email, send them via our Facebook page here, or upload them below.
