Today is Roald Dahl Day where many schoolchildren will be dressed up as their favourite character - perhaps one of The Twits, Matilda or The BFG?

To celebrate one of Britain's best-loved authors, The Leader aims to publish as many pictures as possible of youngsters in their amazing costumes.

We are calling on proud parents and schools to share their child dressed up as one of Roald Dahl's fictional characters, or of your son and daughters pictured with their favourite Roald Dahl book.

Please send pictures with details of where you're from and the full name of your child - plus who they are dressed up as - to news@leaderlive.co.uk or using the contributions tool below.
