Clues including a tooth, a wig and a dressing gown were put up around Milton Park Primary School and children pieced them together to find out who the culprit was.

Pupils and teachers dressed as villains from their favourite stories to mark the event.

The impressive costumes included Bad Dad, Harley Quinn, the Queen of Hearts, Cruella De Vil, Peter Rabbit, the Big Bad Wolf and Burt from Ratburger.

Key stage two pupils visited younger children during the afternoon to read stories with them and the school also drew up a Roald Dahl themed menu for lunch time.

To encourage children to share stories they no longer read, the school started a book swap so they can enjoy them at home.

World Book Day was March 1 but Milton’s celebrations were hit by snow.
