Imaginations ran riot at schools across the town to celebrate International Book Day on 6 March.
Children dressed as characters from their favourite books and schools focused on literary matters for the day.
At Brook Field Primary School, Shaw, staff organised a double celebration as 6 March was also World Science Day. All the Year 4 staff dressed up as mad scientists whilst Year 5 pupils came up with new potions that Alfred Noyes could have used in his poem The Highwayman.
