The children at Monmouth School Girls’ Prep and Monmouth Schools Pre-Prep and Nursery, in particular, embraced the day and brought their favourite characters to life.
Six-year-old Shay dressed as a character from The Christmasaurus, while five-year-old William came to school as Mr Michael McGregor from the Beatrix Potter tales.
Year 6 pupils Meghan and Anna were Lilo and Stitch from the Disney animations.
Headmistress at Monmouth School Girls’ Prep, Mrs Jennie Phillips, also joined in the fun.
Mrs Phillips said: “World Book Day is a wonderful and colourful event which helps spark the imagination of every pupil at our schools.
“Our children enjoy reading and we always try to make story-sharing an important part of their everyday lives.
“Our pupils and staff embraced World Book Day fully and the costumes worn were absolutely fantastic.”
