World Book Day

World Book Day 2019: 14 of the best costume creations from across the Portsmouth area 

WIZARDS, unicorns and superheroes have taken over schools across our area. 

World Book Day fever has hit Portsmouth and the Solent, with children dressing up as their favourite characters as part of the annual event which promotes reading. As well as getting to dress up for school, kids will also receive a book voucher. Here are some of the amazing costumes:
