Literary heroes come to life as students dress the part
LITERARY legends jumped off the pages and into Bruton School for Girls this week.
As part of the school's arts week, the girls came into school dressed as their favourite book characters.
Mr Tickle, Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee were among those on show as the teenagers showcased their creative costumes.
Charlotte Kelley, librarian at the school, said: "Arts week really is such an exciting event presenting the opportunity for staff and students alike to celebrate artistic culture together in a variety of ways.

"This being my first arts week at the school, I have been particularly excited and, from conversations with the girls, I know they have been too.
"The girls are so enthusiastic about celebrating and enjoying the arts, and have enjoyed both the activities familiar to them – as well as those that have presented them with the opportunity to try something new.
"Next year I want to see our school's celebration of the arts become even bigger and better.
"I know that my colleagues have already begun thinking about what arts week 2014 might have in store."
Activities and exhibitions have been held throughout the week to encourage students to be more creative through performance, writing and art.
Award-winning author Gill Lewis, of Castle Cary, visited pupils and gave them an insight into writing fiction.
Pupils also enjoyed a recital from cellist Arturo Cerna, as well as taking part in a 'Shakespeare Live' interactive performance by London-based touring theatre company Traffic of the Stage.
