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.
