Description

A pajama-loving Polly is in for a surprise as she scrambles to find the right party outfit in this sweet, child-friendly tale.

Polly adores her pink pajamas. She wears them all day long! But of course she can’t wear them to Fred’s party, so all her friends lend her something of theirs. Just as she’s ready to leave, Polly catches a look in the mirror — and somehow the too-short polka-dot dress and tiny checkered cardigan and the long striped socks don’t make the fashion statement she’d hoped for. With fun, free-spirited illustrations and a simple story, here’s a humorous tale for young children who love to dress up — and those who decidedly don’t.
