See our pick of Getwestlondon reader pictures from World Book Day

It is the 20th anniversary of World Book Day and to celebrate children from across west London have been heading to school dressed as their favourite book characters.

We have had a great response to our readers sending in pictures of their little ones dressing up as some of the most famous literary characters.

Children have dressed in an array of different outfits, including Harry Potter characters, Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Stuart Little and Postman Pat.
