It's World Book Day - at least it is in the U.K.
The UK is celebrating Unesco's World Book Day today, though most other participating nations observe on April 23.
What are we doing about it in New Zealand? Australia? Canada? USA?
Once again, UK schoolchildren can select from nine short books published for the occasion and on sale for just one pound, including Neil Gaiman's Odd and the Frost Giants and Dav Pilkey's Captain Underpants and the Attack of the Talking Toilets.
