CHILDREN’S classics inspired many costumes at St Andrew’s Catholic Primary School’s Book Week event.

Characters roaming the Clarkson school grounds on August 22 included Anne Shirley from L.M. Montgomery’s 1908 novel Anne of Green Gables.

Mischievous twins Thing 1 and Thing 2 joined the title character from Dr Seuss’s 1957 book The Cat in the Hat for the annual dress-up event.

This year’s Book Week theme was Escape to Everywhere and the City of Wanneroo also hosted a series of events.

Mayor Tracey Roberts attended Book Week sessions at the Alkimos Pop-Up Library on August 21 and 25, reading three books to more than 50 kindergarten students from St James’ Anglican School and supporting Scott Guerini’s Telethon fundraiser for his book, Did You Know You Can Change the World?

Other activities included a watercolour workshop with artist Samantha Hughes, Aboriginal storytelling with Wonghi woman Josie Wowolla Boyle and a writing workshop with author Meg McKinlay.
