From 10am to 4pm today, Children's Book Festival 2015 took over the Wheeler Centre and State Library Victoria with dozens of events designed to celebrate all that's great about children's literature and storytelling.

Once again, the corner of Swanston and Little Lonsdale Streets sprung to life with performers, music, drawing, craft, book-making, signings and more.

Photographer Teagan Glenane captured the colour and joy of the day. Check out her photos below.
