The North West Telegraph caught up with just a few of the schools to check out the weird and wonderful costumes on show.

With Alice and the Hunger Games’ Katniss Everdeen seemingly the most popular characters, students showed their favourite place to escape to as part of the national reading campaign theme. Held by the Children’s Book Council of Australia, the event aims to bring children and books together.
