Children went book-crazy as they dressed up as their favourite literary characters at a costume parade.
North London Collegiate School, in Canons Drive, Edgware, ran a week of special events from October 13-17 to celebrate National Book Week.
The event finished with a costume parade by pupils in the lower school on October 17, with teachers and children wearing costumes from historical tales. The day continued with drama company Perform hosting storytelling workshops for young people, acting out and improvising stories.
Librarian Judy Levinson said: "Book Week provided a wonderful opportunity for the junior school to explore the magical world of books, reading and storytelling.
"It has been a creative and fun week, and we are already looking forward to next year's event."
Award-winning author An Vrombaut also came into the school to host an activity workshop last Thursday.
The writer of the children's TV series 64 Zoo Lane, who lives in Harrow, was on hand to give students advice and tips on writing.
Other activities during the week included a book cover competition, badge making and a sponsored read.
